Dia & Co. Subscription Review – March 2016

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

 

dia-mar

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).

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.

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

dia-mar-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 $101.20 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!

Hooded Knit Top by Prospero – Cost to Keep $52

This top is soooo cute, and it has the perfect balance of classic and edgy that I adore! Unfortunately, for some reason light heather gray is the worst color ever on me. Sadly, this has to go back.

dia-mar-jeans

Slim Medium Blue Distressed Jeans by Junarose – Cost to Keep $119

You might be starting to think I’m a jeans junkie with all the jeans I’ve been keeping from my subscription boxes lately, and maybe I am becoming one! I haven’t owned a good pair of distressed jeans in ages, and the main reason is because my legs are chubby and I inevitably wind up poking out of the larger holes in my jeans. These jeans, however, have a mesh type patch over the distressed areas, so no holes! How cool is that? Plus they’re flattering and just overall really cool looking! I’m keeping these!

dia-mar-dress

Crochet Yoke Dress by BB Dakota – Cost to Keep $96

This dress is super cool and actually really flattering. I’m just not comfortable showing that much skin! Back it goes.

Long Sleeve Top by BB Dakota – Cost to Keep $60

I’m on the fence about this blouse. I love the color, and I think the fabric is some kind of silk blend. I also love the style of the raw edges everywhere, and the notch in the back. It’s really cool. On the other hand, it’s getting warm fast, so I don’t know how many uses I will get out of this. Plus I think I would have to iron it often, and I just detest ironing. I haven’t decided yet!

dia-mar-blue

3/4 Sleeve Blouse by Modamix – Cost to Keep $79

This top is a beautiful color, and I really like the pleating on the front. But, I just got a couple of blouses in this chiffon material from Dia last month, so I think I’m going to send this one back.

Verdict: I love Dia & Co.! It took them a little while to get my style down pat, but now that they have, they’ve become one of my favorite boxes every month. They have started sending me really cool pieces regularly. They also do price matching and size exchanges, so that makes their service just that much more valuable to me. I’m a big fan!

What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?

  1. You can send me that hoodie lol! I started using Dia & Co late last year and the fit and style have really been a challenge…boxes of stuff where the clothes accentuated the bad areas, and others that were so big they looked like potato sacks. What suggestions do you have for getting the right fit?

  2. I just got my first box and it was kind of a disaster. But Iike you said, it took awhile for them to get your style down. I didn’t keep any of the clothing items but did keep a cute clutch. I gave pretty detailed feedback so hopefully the next box will have some keepers.

  3. After i have my baby in June, i will def think about this service.

    Might be cheaper than my Gwynnie Bee service…

  4. A question that I asked of Dia customer service site, but never got an answer. I got one box, loved it, but never got another. Do we have to order them each time, or will they come monthly like Stitch Fix? One day i’ll go on their website to investigate the answer….

    • They are supposed to come every month, kc! I would definitely contact customer service. They are slow on emails, but they do have a chat line if you can hit them up during the day. Hope this helps!

    • I was just looking at their FAQ etc yesterday and they said you can order a box whenever you want – once a month, once a season, once and not again – it says they don’t want to send you things you don’t want and be a hassle so maybe they’ve changed from a straight monthly subscription to a when you want it personal stylist company.

  5. Hi Julianna! For some reason when I put the clothes on the dress form, they look nice, but when I put them on me… err… LOL! I’m plus size and nowhere near tall enough to be a model…

  6. Anna! I love the blue blouse, the crochet dress and definitely those jeans. You’re not alone – I’m definitely a sub box jeans junkie too!! Also, what a brilliant idea for those distressed jeans. My problem with distressed jeans is that my toes get stuck in them when putting them on, or they fall apart when washing, etc. Eventually the “distressed” just becomes, well, holes. The mesh is brilliant!

    • LOL! Hooray for sub box jeans! Thanks Haley!

  7. Anna, how come you never show the clothes actually on you? I would love to see some of these styles on an actual person! That would also make giving feedback easier. For a lot of the other clothing boxes the reviewers post pictures of themselves wearing them and I love those!

    • She may not feel comfortable showing pictures of herself in the clothes, I know I wouldn’t be posting pictures for random strangers to look at and judge me on! The review is about the clothes and she took beautiful pictures of the clothing items!
