Dia & Co. Subscription Review – February 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

dia-jan

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 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 now have first-hand experience, 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.

dia-jan-note

This is the note I received from my new stylist this month, Nyndia.

dia-jan-invoice

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 $86.60 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!

dia-jan-jacket

Woven Bohemian Kimono by Hayden LA – Cost to Keep $58

This kimono is exactly my style, and I completely love it! Plus, it feels like a well-made, quality garment. I love blue and brown together! The price is right, too – this one’s a keeper!

dia-jan-jeans

Hydraulic Mid Rise Bootcut Jeans – Cost to Keep $69

First of all, these jeans are super cool and very flattering. Also, the price is great for jeans! I just bought some jeans from Dia last month, but I would totally buy these anyway, except… they’re too big! I think these jeans run small, so dia sent me a larger size. Now I’m waiting to see if they can send me a smaller size! This is another good thing to know about Dia, they will send you a different size if you need one (and if they have it in stock).

dia-jan-teal-blouse

Zenobia V-Neck Chiffon Blouse – Cost to Keep $39

This blouse is a gorgeous color and I love the open (but still modest) neckline! I’m not crazy about chiffon, but I think I may have to keep this one anyway!

dia-jan-black-blouse

Zenobia Tabbed Sleeve Blouse with Pocket – Cost to Keep $38

I love the open neckline on this blouse, too, and it’s super black (which is great)! It’s so dark you can’t even see the pocket. I noticed, however, when I tried this one on that this month, Dia sent me two blouses by the same designer that are very similar, but in two different sizes. That’s a little odd. This one fits leaner, but maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to fit? I’m not sure. I’m on the fence about this blouse, but if they can find the smaller jeans, then the box discount would be enough to make this blouse free, so I’m holding on to it for now.

dia-jan-vest

Cozy Shearling Vest by Junarose – Cost to Keep $129

I am completely obsessed with this vest. It’s perfect! It’s just my style, fits well, and is cozy without being too bulky! It’s so soft! It’s a little spendy for me, but I am definitely keeping it!

Verdict: It’s taken about three months, but Dia & Co. completely and totally hit the nail on the head this month! I absolutely loved the kimono, the jeans, and the vest, and I liked both the blouses. Please keep your fingers crossed that they can find those jeans in a smaller size! If so, then the blouses will be almost free to keep!

What do you think of Dia & Co.?

  1. Since I’m always critical of companies not offering plus size options, I finally decided to put my money where my mouth is and sign up for Dia. I received an email saying they’re waitlisting new people briefly and I should get my first box toward the end of March. Really looking forward to it!

  2. I haven’t received my box yet this month but 2 of the items you received are in my box as well (which is how I found your blog!) The kimono and the black blouse. I didn’t love the first box I received but did end up keeping 1 top (which I haven’t worn yet). I’m hoping I like this 2nd box better or it may be my last!

  3. I’m getting my 2nd box this month. My first box was a total disaster. Horizontal striped tops when I said I never wear stripes (I have a big bust and they totally do not work on me). Tops that seemed cheaply made and so they were too small, and a weird vest that I think I remember being in other reviewers boxes, as in they try to palm them off to every new customer, regardless of their customer’s style requests. I kept the one accessory I got just to salvage my “styling” fee even though it’s not really my style. Hoping my stylist actually reads my profile and comments from the first box. If the 2nd box is not any improvement I’m not sure I’ll continue. I hope it is, because I’d really like to expand my clothing horizons

  4. Cute clothes! I got a box this month, actually got it yesterday, which is the earliest ever. They still don’t seem to get my style or be listening to me at all, I got two button up blouses which I can’t wear button up shirts at all. All the shirts have hi-lo hems which I’m very over and have told them all this months ago. On the bright side I finally got two brands I love in my box, unfortunately things I won’t wear. Thinking about returning everything, I kinda liked one cardigan, but I don’t know if it’s worth keeping for $38.

  5. Can you skip months? I am going to try the subscription out! Thanks for the review!

    • Yes, you can! When you decide what you’re keeping, you go online and go to “rate my items.” After you rate your items, there’s a question at the bottom that asks when you would like to get your next box. Your options are Next Month, Skip a Month, I’ll Let You Know, or Cancel. Pretty easy! I hope that helps.

      • Thank you!

  6. Oh wow!! I would wear every single thing you received! I’ve been hesitant to take the plunge since I work from home now and don’t need as many clothes, but this month is making me seriously consider it.

    • It’s so fun! But I will say it took about 3 months before they really got my style down pat. You can check out my past reviews if you want to get a feel for how the process moved along. Have fun!
