Dia & Co. Subscription Box Review – February 2017
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)

This is the note I received from my stylist this month, Kristin, explaining why she chose each item. I absolutely love it when my stylist (for any styling service) mentions that she has looked at my Pinterest board! I love it even more, when she proves it by choosing items she knows I will love!
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 $95 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Doris Maxi Dress by Lysse – Cost to Keep $79
I think this is kind of an odd selection for February, but otherwise, I am really liking it a lot. It has a super supportive inner layer (like everything by Lysse) that goes from under the bra line to my thighs and has a very smoothing effect. I really like that! My husband said I look like a Greek goddess. That may be overstating things, but I think it’s a really neat piece!
Zarin Top by Molly & Isadora – Cost to Keep $45
I like the border print and the layering thing that’s going on a lot, but it’s too small. I can’t decide if I like it enough to exchange it for a size up. I am not wild about chiffon in general, either.
Carson Pant Petite by Rafaella – Cost to Keep $65
Sometimes I just have to shake my head about how difficult it is to find pants that fit me right. These pants are not too long for me, which is awesome, and they are just about the perfect length. But, because I am long waisted, the drop is not really long enough. I just don’t think they fit me right, unfortunately. These are a cotton/poly/spandex blend.
Randy Top by Lysse – Cost to Keep $88
For some reason, this top makes me feel like I’m wearing a judicial robe. It’s a very lightweight, semi-sheer knit. I don’t think I know how to drape these tops correctly. This is the third or fourth one I have tried, and I haven’t been excited about any of them.
Aubriana Rip & Repair Skinny Jeans by Slink Jeans – Cost to Keep $98
I received a pair of Slink Jeans in my most recent PLVSH box too, but at that time I was a little bummed that they sent me a size too small. I was also concerned that I could not even fit my leg into them, although I’m not sure I mentioned that in the review. These jeans were sent to me in the correct size, and I can now confidently say, Slink Jeans run very small. I am so bummed! These jeans are awesome! And totally my style! I think I am going to have to ask them to send the next size up and exchange these. Even then, I’m not 100% sure they will fit; these have a pretty low spandex content. I just love the style, though!
Verdict: Dia & Co. is one of my favorite subscription boxes, but this month was not my favorite. I really like the dress, and I have high hopes for the jeans, but the other three pieces were not really right for me. I do love trying new things, though – it’s always so much fun! Overall, I have been very pleased with Dia & Co. They have excellent customer service, and their pieces tend to be more reasonably priced than a lot of other styling services.
What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?
