Dia Active Plus Subscription Box Review – June 2019
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 and reflect my style and price preferences, 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 June 2019 Review
This note from my stylist was included. She explains why she picked some of the items she chose for me.
Also included was this invoice that has a detailed list of the brand, name, and color of each item she selected for me. This box was complimentary, so the prices have been removed, but I listed the retail value below next to each item. If the prices were on the invoice, it would also show 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.
Aral Cooling Sports Bra by Livi – Cost to Keep $59.50
My sister and I were just talking about sports bras, and I came to the realization that you typically have to choose between having adequate support and being able to breathe. I prefer being able to breathe, whereas she prefers lots and lots of support. Having said that, my sister would love this bra! The girls are not going anywhere with this one! I like the colors and design on this bra, and it definitely is very high quality and well made. I also like the standard hook-and-eye closure in the back. This is an especially good sports bra for running or other high-impact pursuits.
Beech Tee by MARC NY – Cost to Keep $39
This is basically my ideal summer workout tee. It’s a cotton knit blend, and it’s nice and lightweight. That makes it really cool and breathable, which is super important in this HEAT! It also has a loose and boxy cut with loose short sleeves. I like the color too!
Lowe Capri Tights by Day/Won – Cost to Keep $74
These leggings are so fun! I am usually not a fan of animal prints, but I kind of like it paired with this supernatural color scheme. The severe gleam effect down the front of the legs is really unusual! Otherwise, they are really nice quality and have sort of medium compression. Cute!
Moonflower Tee With Mesh V-Neck by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $35
I have received tops like this in fitness boxes before with the mesh V in the front, and I have to say, it makes me feel a little like I am on Star Trek. I would prefer having nothing there instead of the mesh, like a really open neckline. I do really like the print on this synthetic blend tee, though, and it is definitely comfortable for workouts.
Kedzie Bike Shorts by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $39
Full disclosure, I have been wearing these shorts pretty much nonstop since I received them. They are PERFECT! They have light compression and a natural fiber feel to them. They are super comfortable! They’re the perfect length for shorts, too. They also have a handy key pocket in the waist (as pictured), and the seaming is pretty flattering. I love these!
Verdict: Dia Active is fantastic! This month, the only item I didn’t love was the mesh tee, but otherwise everything was a big hit with me. The shorts are definitely my favorite piece in the box! I think what makes Dia stand out above other styling boxes, in my experience, is that they really listen to my feedback and try to pick out items that I will really love. And they usually succeed!

Value Breakdown: This box has a $20 styling fee and includes free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $246.50. 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 styling fee for the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $164.88 for the whole box. That’s a discount of about 33%. That’s a great deal!
