 And of course, here is its full trailer. Let's all watch this:

Much like the ukay (secondhand) clothes that she sells, Melanie (Kim Chiu) was also “discarded,” abandoned by her own mother when she was a baby. She dreams of making it big as a fashion designer, to prove her worth and show her mother that she should’ve never left her. She finds the opportunity of a lifetime when a handsome young fashion executive, Chris (Jake Ejercito), takes notice of her talents. As Melanie steps into the fast-paced and cutthroat world of the Filipino fashion industry, she also finds herself on a journey towards self-awareness, empowerment, forgiveness, and the possibility of true love.  

“We're excited to continue to make Prime Video the home of the best Filipino talents,” said David Simonsen, director of Prime Video Southeast Asia. “We believe with its compelling storyline and exceptional performances, Fit Check: Confessions of an Ukay Queen will keep our audiences both inspired and entertained.”
