Dia Active Subscription Box Review – November 2018
Dia Active is an activewear styling service that caters to women plus sizes 14 and up. Upon enrolling with Dia Active, I filled out an extensive survey asking me about my clothing size/weight/height, style, price range, and what activities and/or sports I partake in. For $20 a Dia Active stylist selects five curated pieces sent directly to me! I am able to try them on at the convenience of my own home and only pay for pieces I decide to keep! The $20 styling fee is applied to whatever I do keep, but if I keep the entire box 25% is taken off as well!
The items in my box are chosen personally for me dependent and reflective of my style and price preference, so the package you receive from Dia Active may be entirely different than mine!
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Dia & Co. Active Box November Review
This note from my stylist (Emily) was included. I like the idea of having cheerleaders in any aspect of my life, so this is much appreciated! She explains why she picked some of the items she chose for me. And yes, I did ask if they have leg warmers! Dia tends to be a little more fashion forward than some of the other styling services, so I thought, who knows?
Also included was this invoice that has a detailed list of the brand, name, color, and price of each item she selected for me. It shows the total for all five items, the $20 credit for the styling fee, and the 25% discount if I decide to keep all five items.
Crocus Strappy Back Tee by Shape Activewear – Cost to Keep $54
I have this exact same lightweight cotton tee in dark gray already, and guess what? I love it! I literally wore it out over the summer, it is so comfortable and stylish. I am thrilled to have another one in this lovely blue color!
Park Pant Petite by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $50
This is the best pair of yoga pants I have ever received in a subscription box, bar none. First off, they are petite, so no hemming required! I usually don’t gamble with petite pants because they are often too short, and while you can make pants shorter, you can never make them longer. I seem to be right on the edge of regular vs. petite. But these are exactly the right length! They are a thick cotton blend knit, and they have awesome zipper pockets for keeping my keys and ID. They are also fitted through the thighs and loose on the calves, which is exactly how I like my yoga pants! These are awesome!
Roseum Hooded Tee With Side Knot Detail by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $42
The word “tee” here is really a misnomer. It is a nice cotton knit, but it is super thick. It’s not super flattering on me, but it is so comfortable, and perfect for layering! It has short-ish sleeves, so it would be great over a long sleeve tee. It is also super soft and warm, especially with the hood up! I think the side knot is a cute detail, too. This is a keeper!
Sumac Split Sleeve Tee by Marc NY – Cost to Keep $38
I love this tee, too! It is super lightweight, and I love the color! I also love this particular variation on the split sleeve / cold shoulder trend. It’s a lot more reasonable and modest. It may feel like the wrong time of year to be receiving lightweight tees, but when I am in the gym I get really hot and peel off layers immediately. I also greatly prefer natural fibers in my tops, like this cotton knit, and so this tee is just absolutely perfect.
Halifax Cropped Printed Leggings by Livi – Cost to Keep $49.95
These leggings complete a perfect box for me! They have compression but are still comfortable. They are slimming. They are a cute color combination and print. They have a tummy panel that actually works. They do not slide down while I am wearing them. They are opaque. They are a good length. What more could I want?
Verdict: This was my second Dia Active box from Dia Active, and I am blown away! It was a grand slam! I loved everything, but the yoga pants were probably my favorite. I have to say, of all the styling boxes I have tried, I really feel like Dia is the one that most closely reads my feedback and actually tries to make my next box even better. They also have good prices. I love Dia Active! I can’t wait for my next box!

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.
