If there is one thing we can all agree on, people come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In between size zero and plus-size, there's a whole range of sizes not being represented in the fashion industry. Curve models are out to change the fashion industry.
Curve models are exactly what they sound like. They are models with curves. They are not thin like catwalk models, and they aren't plus-size. They represent that massive space found between the two. "My body will never be a size zero. And there are so many people out there just like me, and right now the curve industry is just blowing up because people are realizing curve models are cool, and most people are not that skinny," said curve model, Jordyn Woods. Barbie Ferreira agrees. "The term 'plus-size' is so inaccurate. I'm not plus-size, I have never bought an article of clothing that was plus-size," she says.

Still, despite the fact that the industry seems to be coming around to a range of figures, it can still be difficult to find clothing in straight sizes. And when you think about it, that is totally bizarre. If so many of us fit into the "curve" category, why aren't there more clothing options available? Why aren't there more options available in general? While this rise in beautiful, curvy, shapely and muscular models is a great thing, it won't be perfect until clothing lines represent this shift.
What do you think of curve models? Do you think it is an exciting trend?
