About Ivory & Main

In 2018 Ivory & main was founded by Curinne Polizzi.  As a plus size woman herself she understood how difficult it could be at times to find clothes as it is, nevertheless a wedding gown.  Bridal dress shopping should be a wonderful experience for everyone.  When it was time to find her own gown she set her sites on going to a plus size gown shop.  Where else would a plus size woman be more comfortable buying a gown? Some place that understood the curvy body type and had more then a few dresses to try on.  Unfortunately nothing like this existed in New York state, not one in all of NY apparently... "Wait. WHAT??"

The thought of going to a regular bridal shop to try on dresses can give many anxiety and may even make you want to prolong the experience even further.  Curinne had spoken to many past curvy Brides and even though the stores do have plus size sections, some women had not had the best experiences and shared those stories with her.  So the hesitation she felt searching for her gown was only natural.  That is where her mission began....

The  Details

With all of this swirling around it was hard to walk away from this idea to open a shop, so she placed her own wedding planning  on a temporary hold and began to put a plan into action to open Ivory & Main, probably more quickly than anyone had anticipated she would.  After doing some research on Curvy shops in other states she decided it was time that NY had one of its own and not 2 years from now, but NOW.  She found that Downtown Sayville was the perfect location to begin her journey of becoming New York’s 1st exclusively curvy bridal shop owner.  They not only house designer label Plus size Wedding gowns, but Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride plus size as well.  Also they carry a wide variety of accessories to complete your looks for your special day.  

Curinne has expressed that thus far it has been an amazing road, "It's a great feeling to be able to bring this to our community.   The business itself, in all honesty, is a bonus. The real goal here and what excites me is being able to bring to the plus size community what we should have had in NY decades ago."  The shop is dedicated to helping curvy women feel relaxed and anxiety free  during their appointments at I&M.  The main objective is to assist brides in finding their perfect dress. 

 

 "Every woman, no matter her size, should feel beautiful on her special day, and every woman deserves to have the same experience as the next (bridal tears optional) if I can contribute to the curvy community and make that a reality for them, than that makes this journey a success"   ~Curinne Polizzi
