Dia Active Plus Fitness Clothing Review – May 2019
Dia Active is an activewear styling service that caters to women clothing in 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 May 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.
Sutherland Mesh Back Sports Bra by Rune – Cost to Keep $55
What a cute sports bra! I love that it’s red! The mesh detailing on the back is also really awesome. It’s a synthetic blend, but it has a natural fiber feel. I prefer a natural fiber feel in activewear tops, not just because it is more comfortable to me, but it is also much more breathable, in my opinion. This bra has a sort of medium support, but in exchange for a little less support is a lot of comfort. It was also very easy to put on despite being a pull-over. What a cool bra!
Autumn Blaze Tee by Shape Activewear – Cost to Keep $50
I think I have to Just Say No to white workout tops in general. This one is cute and reasonably comfortable, but it’s so shiny. I don’t really want my whole torso to be shiny, ya know? I feel like I am almost glowing in this top, and not in a good way. When I wear white I am always extra careful to not get anything on my clothing, and I really don’t want to have to worry about not getting dirty when I am working out. It is also a synthetic mix, but needless to say it does not have the natural feel that I like. I do really like the stripes down the sides, though. It’s a cute top, it’s just a matter of preference.
Bayard Capri Tights by Shape Activewear – Cost to Keep $70
These leggings are so awesome! I love them! They meet all of my criteria for a good pair of leggings – they are supportive, they have a waist pocket in the back, they are opaque, and they are flattering – but they also have this super cool pinhole design throughout. These are awesome!
Pyrenees Jacket by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $68
It is way too hot for me to contemplate a jacket right now. It will be four months before I consider wearing one again here in Georgia. Having said that, this is a really cool jacket. I don’t often think of workout jackets as cool, but something about this one just looks cool. It almost has a moto look to it due to all the seaming and trim. The black is flattering as always, and the collar is really modern looking. I like it!
Ginkgo Long Sleeve Top by Lola Getts – Cost to Keep $65
It’s also a little too hot for long sleeves here, but this top is so cute! I love the colors. I will save it for the fall in any case. It is a cotton blend knit, so it is super comfortable and soft. I think the stripe down the back is such a neat detail!
Verdict: Dia Active is awesome! I have really been enjoying my subscription over the past several months. Like most styling services, there is usually a mixture of hits and misses, but I have to say that I feel like Dia is the styling service that most closely listens and responds to my feedback. That’s so important! This month I loved the leggings and the sports bra the most, and overall I really liked the black, white, and red color palette. So fun!

Value Breakdown: This box has a $20 styling fee and includes free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $308. 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 $211 for the whole box. That’s a discount of about 31%. That’s a great deal!
