Dia & Co. Subscription Box Review – November 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.
Ships to: U.S. 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.

This is the note I received from my stylist this month, Stephanie, explaining why she chose each item. I this she does a great job personalizing my shopping experience! And I am so happy she looked at my Pinterest board to get a better sense of my style.
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 $72.06 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Lynn Sweater Vest by B. Curvy – Cost to Keep $95
I love this vest! It’s so soft and comfortable, and it’s completely different from anything else I own. I think it looks pretty good, too!
Mariela Ankle Pant by Eloquii – Cost to Keep $69.90
I don’t think the cut of these pants is particularly flattering on me, and black pants should always be flattering, so I’m leaning toward sending these back. One thing I will say about Eloquii pants is that they are super high quality. I have one pair in my closet that I have had for years, and they still look almost new, with all buttons and zippers and everything still intact and working.
Dulcie Peasant Top by Jessica Simpson – Cost to Keep $79.50
This blouse is completely within my fashion aesthetic, but the cut is all wrong for me. It’s also a little too sheer for my tastes.
Linden Pant by Michael Studio – Cost to Keep $69
These pants are really more like pull-on leggings, but they don’t give as much as I would like, so they’re a little uncomfortable. I might try exchanging them for a bigger size. I like the textured look of the black and charcoal micro-print on these. I guess I’m torn about keeping them.
Portia Sweater Dress by Fashion to Figure – Cost to Keep $46.90
OK, hear me out. I know horizontal stripes on curvy women is a no-no, and I understand this is not the most flattering dress in the world on me. But I absolutely LOVE the print and the colors, and basically the whole look of it. I also love the neckline! I don’t have anything else like it, and just look at how inexpensive it is! Can’t I please keep it?
Verdict: Dia & Co. is one of my favorite subscription boxes! I think of all the styling boxes I receive, Dia sends the most interesting, unusual pieces (which I love), and their pieces tend to be the most reasonably priced. The vest this month was a sure fire win for me, and I love the dress, too! Please vote and tell me I absolutely must keep it!
What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?
