Dia & Co. Clothing Subscription Box Review – March 2017

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

dia-and-co-march-2017-box

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!

This is the note I received from my stylist this month, Janet, explaining why she chose each item. She also gives styling suggestions.

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 $60.60 if I kept all five items.

Nala Blouse by Daniel Rainn – Cost to Keep $69

This chiffon blouse has roll-tab sleeves and a notched neckline. I love the color scheme! The print is nice, and I think overall it’s a fairly flattering cut.

Astrid Trouser by B. Curvy – Cost to Keep $67

These silky cropped pants are an unusual mix of formal and casual. They have a tie on a flattened front waistband, but also an elastic waist. I think they are going for sort of an Asian feel with these pants. I just never know what to do with cropped pants since my legs are so short!

Trenton Top by Dex Plus – Cost to Keep $49

I have tried this exact top before in a different styling box. It’s a cotton knit with loads of draping! The thing that makes me uncomfortable about this top is that it’s darted together at the bust line, but then it’s open below that, where the material crosses. I feel like if I made some awkward move my entire midsection would be exposed.

Ember Color Skinny Pants by Morgan & Walker – Cost to Keep $69

These jeans are just not right for me. Yes, they are a bit too tight for me, but I don’t understand why they are gathering and bunching up everywhere. I am also not wild about the color.

Davida Flutter Sleeve Top by B. Curvy – Cost to Keep $49

I think this top is really cute, but not very flattering on me. It’s a super soft cotton knit, and I love the way it feels. I just wish it looked better on me.

Verdict: Dia & Co. is one of my favorite subscription boxes, but this month was not my favorite. I liked the printed blouse okay, but everything else felt like kind of a miss 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?

  1. Girl slay on. They aren’t shipping to Canada (yet!) so I’ll live vicariously through you.
    PS I love the green pants! They look great with the striped top too =)

  2. I’m only being charged $20 a month though, right?
    If I choose to not keep any clothing.
    I only pay more if I choose to actually buy an item(s), correct?

    • Yep! You pay $20 up front. If you don’t keep anything, all you will ever pay is the $20. If you keep anything, the $20 goes towards the purchase and you get a discount (varies – D&C is 20% I think. SF is 25%) if you keep everything.

  3. I liked the flutter top. My wish is that they made the stripes go up and down. It would lengthen and flatter better. I just ordered my first box. Can’t wait to see what they send.

  4. I tried Dia & Co for several months and they just never ~got me. All the clothes looked like what skinny people think plus size girls would want to wear. BLECH. I tried a different subscription service that just started offering PS and they knocked it out of the park on the very first box. For a PS specific service, Dia & Co does not seem to know trendy PS style.

    • I haven’t tried any of these clothing services yet but they sound so fun! I’m worried about the stylists “getting me” though, so I don’t want to have to eat that styling fee every month, so I haven’t signed up yet. Dia & Co just caught my eye…. so maybe!

      But I did want to ask Rebecca, can you tell me what PS service that just started that knocked it out of the park for you? I want something trendy and something that really gets my style.

      Thanks!

      • Stitch Fix!

        • Thanks for the reply! I’ll check out Stitch Fix too. 😉

          • I only have done it the one time so far, but I was super happy with it! Hope you have success with it as well!

    • I am so with you. I tried Dia & Co after reading about 20 reviews on this site, and I was so incredibly bummed with what they sent me. I felt like they did not read any of my feedback. The clothes I received looked cheap (but cost way more than I usually spend on clothes!!) and not a single thing was flattering, unfortunately. I chalked up the bad first box to it being, well, the first box, but after the second one was somehow even worse…nope. Canceled. I’m eagerly awaiting my first Stitch Fix!

      • I had the same experience with my first Dia& Co box. I specifically said I work from home and do not need work clothes and they STILL sent work clothes. Also my PS sent the same size for both my tops and bottom when my profile clearly states my top size is a full size smaller. I know she read my profile as she references it in my letter but she wrong sizes and nothing that fit my profile. I sent everything back with feedback and have another box coming. Hopefully this one is better

  5. I think the flutter top would look great if it was a different color

  6. I have an amazing stylist and normally love my Dia boxes but this month was a total miss for me. I also got the Trenton top in red and felt the same way about the crossover (plus the draping looked all funky). I may actually return everything and eat the styling cost which I have never done before. Glad to see it wasnt just my box that was off!

  7. I love draped tops like the Trenton. I always use a cami under them, and a piece of double sided tape to keep everything secure

    • Good thinking mandie!

  8. No poll?? I thought the flutter sleeve was so cute on you.

    • Thanks Michelle! And the polls are there for me… I will let them know polls are not loading for you.

  9. Of all the pieces – the flutter top (that you probably liked the least) was the one thing I thought looked fantastic on you! The rest was either cut wrong for you or way to dark and gloomy looking going into spring. I know coloured jeans are the in thing…but those looked bunched up like they weren’t cut on the bias right, or something! Love your reviews, Anna!

    • Thank you so much Resa! That means a lot to me!

    • I think the flutter top was my fave on you as well! There’s a great spring, youthful look to it, and it looks great with the green pants.

      • Thanks Candace!

  10. I love the Trenton top on you. It’s very flattering.

    • Thanks katie!

  11. I actually really like the black top and the colored jeans on you. I agree that the other pieces just aren’t flattering. The crop pants are hitting your legs in an odd place. I’m only 5’1 so I totally understand short girl issues!

    • Thanks Karen! It’s so nice to hear that. Cropped pants are so hard! Ankle pants turn into regular pants, capris turn into cropped pants, but cropped pants just never seem to make sense on me. I think they would look amazing on someone with long legs!
