With all of the buzz going on around our Love Yourself Weekend (https://www.boldzine.com/bold-magazine-self-love-weekend), we want to share another one of the beautiful and amazing sponsors/resources joining us at the event!

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?

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….

Curinne and her fiancé postponed their wedding and put their wedding money into a new store for plus size brides, Ivory & Main.

Ivory & Main is the only plus size bridal boutique on Long Island and we’re so happy to have them as a sponsor of our Love Yourself Weekend! You can find their website here:


 “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
