Dia & Co. Subscription Review – January 2016
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)
The Products: 5 plus-size clothing items selected for you based on your Style Profile.
Ships to: US Only, shipping is free both ways
Good to Know: I learned from our readers that Dia & Co. DOES price match! So if you like something and want to keep it, but find it for less somewhere else, Dia & Co. will sell the item to you for that price.

This is the note my stylist sent, explaining a bit about why she chose the items she chose.
This is the invoice for the items they sent this month. It shows each item and the cost to keep, plus the cost of the items totaled. Then at the bottom it shows the total with the styling fee credited and the 20% discount for keeping all five items. The discount this month would be $89.63 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Junarose Drapey Blazer – Cost to Keep $114.99
This is a nice blazer, but I specifically asked for more color in my selections this month. I’m not in the market for black right now. I did really love the cut of this blazer, though, plus the zipper pocket details were super cool.
Junarose Top – Cost to Keep $50.67
This top is not my style at all, and it’s summery. This went back, too.
Taylor 3/4 Sleeve Printed Dress – Cost to Keep $104
I liked the print on this dress a lot! It was just a little too structured for me. It didn’t quite fit right. Also, I was a little annoyed that the only color they sent me this month was one that I asked to not get (coral)!
London Times Jumpsuit – Cost to Keep $89
In my opinion, you have to be pretty thin to look good in a jumpsuit. This went back also.
Calvin Klein Printed Soft Pants – Cost to Keep $89.50
I kind of don’t even know where to start with these pants, they have a lot going on! These are printed flowy tuxedo pants with a black and white print and legs that peg in a bit at the bottom. These went back.
I was really disappointed that I didn’t like any of the five pieces they sent this month! Also, like some of you have expressed, I didn’t feel like they really listened to my preferences and requests at all this time. The good news is that I contacted customer service, and they were more than happy to send me a make-up box at no extra styling fee! I received it about a week to ten days later.
This is the note that came with the second box.
This is my invoice for the second box.
Kiyonna Pullover Wrap Top – Cost to Keep $62
This top was super flattering on me, and just my style! I guess I always thought that Kiyonna was for busty girls (and I am not), but so far I have loved and kept both Kiyonna items that Dia & Co. has sent me!
BB Dakota Crepe Dress – Cost to Keep $72
I like the color of this dress and the cool detail on the back, but it was kind of shapeless on me. This had to go back.
Levi’s Curvy Bootcut Jeans – Cost to Keep $54.50
I absolutely love the dark wash on these jeans! Also I have to admit that in my experience, Levi’s makes a pretty shapely plus-sized jean! This is my second pair from them, and they just give me an absolutely great shape! I’m keeping these.
Hayden LA Embroidered Tunic – Cost to Keep $38
This tunic is wonderful! It’s soft and flowy, made of natural materials, and the sleeves are very flattering. I’m keeping it forever.
Naked Zebra Panel Blouse – Cost to Keep $44.99
I like the idea of buttons up the back, but this top wasn’t flattering on me at all. I need a more open neckline. This went back.
The Verdict: I have to admit I was pretty annoyed with the first box that Dia & Co. sent me this month. On the other hand, I am really happy that their customer service is so completely excellent. I feel like my second stylist understood my style much better than the first, and I love the three pieces that I am keeping from that box.
