Dia & Co. Subscription Review – September 2015
Dia & Co. is a monthly clothing styling subscription service for plus sizes. I have been waiting for ages for someone to start this kind of service! When I signed up for the service, I filled out a fairly in-depth questionnaire about my likes and dislikes, my size, my price range, and other questions that might help my stylist. Every month my stylist sends five pieces for me to try out. The service fee is $20 per month, but that fee is applied to any item I decide to keep. Additionally, there is a 20% discount if I decide to keep all five pieces!
FYI – My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your package from Dia & Co. may be completely different!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Dia & Co.
The Cost: $20 Styling fee (Pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)

Dia & Co. applied this little instruction card to the inside of the box. It explains a bit more about how the service works logistically. Very helpful!
On the left is the invoice with the itemized prices. It also shows what my total cost to keep would be with the $20 styling fee applied plus the 20% discount if I keep all five items. On the right is a note from my stylist Maria, telling me a bit more about why she chose some of the items.
Not Your Daughter’s Jeans Widelegged Trousers – Cost to Keep $124
I am so pleased to finally try a pair of NYDJ jeans! I’ve never tried them before, and I finally know what all the fuss is about! They have the perfect amount of supportive stretch, and the dark rinse plus wide legs are super flattering. I also love the simple tailoring on this pair. I just don’t know if I can bring myself to spend retail price on jeans! This is in the maybe pile for now…
Karin Stevens Contrast Shift Dress – Cost to Keep $49.50
This is seriously one of the most flattering dresses I have ever tried on. The light top plus the dark bottom is very slimming on pear shapes like myself! I also love the print; it has a retro vibe updated with modern colors. Unfortunately, I just can’t buy a summer dress in September. It’s a hard and fast rule with me, so this one has to go back.
Diya Boho Top with Paisley Print – Cost to Keep $57
This top is really unflattering on me. I like the print and the fabric, it’s perfect for fall, but I don’t look good in anything that “balloons,” and this blouse balloons everywhere. This one has to go back as well.
ASOS Curve Lace Top with Insert – Cost to Keep $61
This blouse is so beautiful! The fabric is so lightweight and sheer, and the detailing everywhere is absolutely gorgeous! This blouse with a cami is the perfect weight for early fall, and it’s just my style. This one’s a keeper for sure.
Blue Heart Aztec Print Cardigan – Cost to Keep $40
This cardigan is very cute and the cut is flattering. Unfortunately I don’t like the color, and the fabric feels a little cheap to me. I think I have to send this one back, too.
The Verdict: This was a really fun and exciting first box from Dia & Co.! I think my stylist did an excellent, excellent job selecting items that are perfect for my tastes. I completely loved three of the five items she sent me, and I’m only sending the dress back because of the season. The other two items were close to the mark but didn’t quite hit the bullseye. I’m impressed! I can’t wait to see what next month brings.
What do you think of Dia & Co.?
