The Wedding Industry
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, nevertheless a wedding gown. Bridal dress shopping should be a wonderful experience for everyone. so When it was time to find her own gown she set her sites on going to a plus size bridal gown shop. Unfortunately nothing like this existed in New York state. Shortly after her search she found herself placing her own wedding planning on a temporary hold, took their wedding savings and began to put a plan into action to open Ivory & Main, New Yorks 1st exclusive plus size Bridal shop.
"It's a great feeling to be able to help plus size women. The business itself, in all honesty, is a bonus, what excites me the most is being able to bring to the plus size community what we should have had in NY decades ago."
The Wedding Memories
There are a couple of Brides that we have referenced in articles written about the shop over the years, but there is one in particular that stands out the most. Shorty after Ivory & Main opened there was a bride who came in with her Mom to search for gowns. She was so sweet but very nervous and you could see she had anxiety about gown shopping. She tried on a few dresses and said yes to this beautiful lace Essense of Austrailia gown. I remember her mom going up on the platform and they were hugging each other so tightly, and as tears rolled down both of their faces the bride said to her mom, I cant believe I found the dress, I never thought I would be able to actually try them on. There wasnt a dry eye in the shop. Her anxiexy wasnt so much about finding the gown, it was actually being able to put the gown on and see how it would look on her body. This expereince should be the same for Brides of all sizes, and being plus size can make that challenging at times. We are dedicated to making the day as memorable as it should be.

As a plus size bride, there is simply nothing like this. This dress shop takes the dread out of in person wedding dress shopping for curvy women. I drove down from Massachusetts and it was So SO worth it. I can’t say enough good things about my experience there, the dresses, the stylist I worked with, and the interior!
What an amazing bridal store! My daughter bought her dress here. The staff is amazing. They make you feel like family. The best, most comfortable bridal store ever! Elle, who helped my daughter, was so knowledgeable, and so attentive. I couldn’t have asked for better service.
An absolute "must" for curvy brides! The selection truly is vast carrying all of the best designers. At no point did I feel limited in my dress shopping experience here. Leah was amazingly helpful, patient and thoughtfully picked some truly stunning dresses based on the vibe I described for my wedding.
Ok so if I could give this place a 10 STAR rating I would. They have a variety of dresses in every size, for the smaller waist and for those of us with a curve. This shop is amazing as they have larger sizes so I could actually try on sample dress, that fit me. They were so helpful and truly care about ensuring you find a wedding dress you fall in love with.
THIS PLACE IS AMAZING! I had a wonderful experience getting my dress from here. Gianna was SO helpful and sweet and made me feel so special. Everyone in the store was just so nice and truly caring. The dresses are GORGEOUS and its so nice being able to have a store like this that caters to curvy/plus size women. I could not recommend this place more.
