Dia & Co. Plus Size Clothing Subscription Review – December 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 paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Dia & Co. December 2017 Review
I love Dia & Co.‘s packaging and printed material! They always make everything look so pretty. It always feels like such a special package!
This is the note I received from my stylist this month, Cami, explaining why she chose each item. She also gives really helpful styling suggestions! Please note that almost every note I get starts with an apology that my last box was not good. That’s not really true, I just don’t keep everything every time, so I guess they feel like they need to apologize. No apology needed, Dia! You’re doing great!
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 $118.75 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Bali Boat Neck Bohemian Blouse by Dex Plus – Cost to Keep $59.99
My husband really liked this cotton blouse! I like the colors and pattern, but I feel like it’s just too big in every dimension. I recently saw an interview with Rebel Wilson in which she asked the same question I ask in my head all the time: Why do they make plus sized clothing so much longer? I know there are some women who are plus sized because they are super tall, I totally get that, but the vast majority of us are still in the average range for height. I am a little short, so I expect sleeves and hems to be a bit long on me, but this top is kind of extreme.
Union Destructed Crop Bootcut Jean by Warp + Weft – Cost to Keep $98
What’s that I hear? Could it be a holiday unicorn? I think it is!!! I am so psyched about these jeans!!! If you read my reviews at all, you will know I am always bemoaning my short legs and complete inability to find bootcut or flared jeans and pants because of them. Usually, the flare starts too low and the amount of hemming required would make them look strange. Not the case with these beauties! The inseam is perfect, and the flare hits just right! Love!!! I am also pleased with the wash and distressed areas. Hooray!
Freida Jacquard Duster by Rafaella – Cost to Keep $99
This boucle cardigan is super warm, and I love the colors! It also has faux leather trim which I am less wild about, personally. I just don’t like the way it feels on my neck. But, it does give this duster a more luxe feel.
Jolene Sharkbite Front Pocket Blouse by Melissa McCarthy for Seven7 – Cost to Keep $69
I totally love this chiffon tunic! It has such a cute cut! I love the print and colors, and I love the pockets! The detail at the neckline is awesome, too.
Beverly Hills High-Low Wrap Dress – Cost to Keep $69
Y’all, I don’t know what to do about this dress. This is the absolute perfect dress for autumn in Georgia. It’s still hot here through October, but in September we start covering up a bit more and wearing earth tones like this lovely chocolate brown. I love the colors and print on this dress, and I even love the high-low hem! The hemline is gorgeous, actually – it’s very graceful, the perfect length, and not too extreme. The poly/spandex blend is super comfortable and forgiving. I think it is super cute on, too! The thing is, autumn is over! I really don’t see wearing this for another several months, but I love it so! What do I do?
The Verdict: Dia & Co. is one of my favorite subscription boxes, and this month was awesome! I am so happy about my unicorn jeans! I also love the Melissa McCarthy top! And that dress! I’m not sure what to do about the dress, but it’s still beautiful. 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.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box cost $20 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $394.99. The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 25% discount. The $20.00 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $276.94 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 30% discount!
