Dia & Co. Subscription Review – May 2016

Dia & Co
2.5 overall rating
74 Ratings | 23 Reviews

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).

dia-may-inside

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.

dia-may-note

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

dia-may-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 $81.20 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!

dia-may-junarose

Junarose Patterned Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $99

I’m not usually really into maxi dresses, but this was my favorite piece in the whole box this month! I love this dress! I love a scarf print, and the neckline is so unique! I am keeping this dress for sure!

dia-may-top

Tua Jessie Top – Cost to Keep $42

This top is really cute for spring and summer! I love the bell sleeves and the mixed texture. I actually didn’t think it was very flattering, but my husband loved it, so it’s a keeper! One thing I love about Dia is that they sometimes push me out of my comfort zone, and it ends up working for me.

dia-may-capris

Rafaella Teagan Slim Capris – Cost to Keep $65

I haven’t been thinking about it much lately, but I actually need to replace my black capris, and these are perfect. I know capris are totally summer mom pants, which makes them feel less fashionable, but there’s a good reason they’re summer mom pants! They’re easy and comfortable, and they look good with sandals!

dia-may-tank

Florence Tank by Emerald – Cost to Keep $38

This is another example of Dia pushing me out of my comfort zone a bit. When I pulled this top out of the box, I thought the cut would look terrible on me. When I tried it on, it looked great! This is another keeper!

dia-may-maxi

Journey Dress by Emerald – Cost to Keep $62

This is the only piece in this month’s box that didn’t work for me. It’s a cute dress, and I love the detail on the bottom, but I don’t look great in coral. I love tie-dye, but for some reason I don’t love the coral and white pattern. This piece will have to go back.

Verdict: I love Dia & Co.! This box was a huge hit for me, despite one piece that wasn’t exactly to my liking. Four out of five is great! I also found a better price on two of the items I’m keeping online, so I think I will walk away with an additional discount of about $50! Score! I am really enjoying my Dia & Co. Subscription!

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

Today, the majority of American women are sizes 10-32 and all of them are underserved. At Dia & Co, we have the radical notion that by putting these women first, we can serve them best. Unlike straight-sized retailers, we understand and honor curvy women through unparalleled fit and inspiring conten... read more.

So happy you loved your box!! 🙂

Stormie

I hate how they seem to rotate the same pieces to different people. I got two of those items this month in my first box. I see so much of the same stuff in different people’s boxes.

Renee

I still really like Dia despite mixed results. I wish that you kept the same stylist every month, especially when you get one who sends stuff you love and you keep the whole box. I’ve had some months when everything is perfect but a lot of months when I’ve only kept one thing, mainly to use my credit. The biggest frustration I’ve had is that I’m short and I’ve received pants that were way too long multiple times. Every time I stress that I need petite/short length on pants. I feel like if you had one stylist who kept good notes, this wouldn’t happen.

Your box is SO much better than mine…I specifically asked for some summery items and linked my pinterest which is full of sweet skirts and dresses for inspiration….what I got was black…black….black….grey….ugh…. I did not pay for this box because I had a credit due to not ordering a box in a while….I think I may keep one thing just to not waste the credit but it is definitely not a “springy” box…..

If you keep the Capris – do some quick googling. You can probably find them (depending on your size) online pretty heavily discounted. I have learned that spending 1/2 hour or so online before making my keep/return decisions is worth every second. It never fails that I find one or more items online at a lower price. As long as the same size and color is in stock, they’ll price match. Just send a screen shot and/or web link to the customer service and they’ll adjust your invoice when they charge you. (I kept the pants because they only cost $33 after the price match).

BTW – the pants are fab. I’ve had them for a week and I already wore them twice. They’re a little heavier than I was expecting, but they keep their shape well and look very nice!

I just ordered my first box from Dia and I was really disappointed. I filled out the very detailed questionaire and included comments. I stressed that I am tall, that I am bigger on the bottom than top, and that I hate anything next to my neck..I prefer V or scoop neck. that I live in Cali and it is getting warm..my first box included pants a size smaller than I said was my size, they were also skinny ankle pants that were about 6 inches too short for me….a top that had a cowl/fold over neck that was too hot/tight around my neck,…a top in one of two colors I said I couldn’t wear, and dressy blouse that ran small….I was surprised how way off base the box was considering how much detail I put into not only answering the questions but also in my comments. I sent it all back, and requested another box….if this one has the same issues, it will be my last box.

AmyM

My first box was not great either. Several things that were directly contrary to what was in my profile. Said I don’t like showing my knees, got an above the knee skater skirt. Said “no brown” got a brown dress. I was so disappointed I’ve held off on getting another box.

Kimberly P

Are you me? I too am tall, pear shaped, and hate things touching my neck (even crew neck t-shirts!)

Julie

Hahaha! There must be a lot of us! I was going to make the same comment! I even live in California as well! 🙂

Annie

Don’t send back the last dress! With the 20% discount it’s FREE. List it on the swap site!

Antoinette

Where is the swap site ? I have been keeping pieces just to pay less

Krista

But not as much if she’s getting a deeper discount for finding a couple of the other items for less online.

Annie

True. If she gets $50 knocked of the price of some of the other items it would cost $14 to keep the dress.
