Dia & Co. Subscription Box Review – June 2016
Dia & Co. is a monthly clothing styling subscription service for plus sizes. 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.

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 stylist this month, Stephanie, explaining why she chose each item.
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 $86.20 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Shea Top by Hayden LA – Cost to Keep $45
Instant keeper! I don’t have nearly enough short-sleeved tunics, and the trapeze cut is really flattering. Plus it has an open neckline, which is key for me. Super cute!
Ophelia Dress by Junarose – Cost to Keep $99
I really wanted to like this dress because the pattern is beautiful, and I tend to love things from Junarose. Unfortunately the color palette plus the crew neckline had a fattening effect on me. Back it goes.
Lacey Dress by Tua – Cost to Keep $49
I think Lacey is the name of the dress, not a reference to actual lace, as there’s no lace on the dress anywhere. Of course a solid black jersey knit dress is always super flattering, but this dress didn’t feel seasonally appropriate to me. I am also trying to get more color into my wardrobe at the moment. This one will have to go back too, unfortunately.
James Patterned dress by Junarose – Cost to Keep $69
This dress looks kind of like a sack on the dress form, but it turns out it’s really flattering and cute on! If I stand perfectly still, then yes, it looks kind of sack-ish, but this dress likes the way I move! The neckline is more open than it appears and the detailing at the shoulders is perfect for a hint of skin. For some reason, this dress also makes me look super tan. I love it! Keeper!
Margaret Top by Modamix – Cost to Keep $69
It seems like every month there must be at least one piece that I can’t decide on, and this month it’s this top. I love everything about this top! It’s soft, the neckline is open, the color is right, and the mesh detailing is super funky! The only issue is that it has long sleeves, and realistically I won’t wear it for at least another three months. What to do?
Verdict: I love Dia & Co.! This month’s pieces were about what I’ve come to expect from Dia, with two hits, two misses, and a maybe. They get better at picking the right things for me just about every month. Using this service has also helped me to come out of my comfort zone a bit and try things that normally wouldn’t appeal to me, like my new black and white Junarose dress! Dia & Co. has become on of my favorite mail days all month!
What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?
