Dia & Co is a monthly plus-size clothing subscription box that is personally curated for you by a Dia stylist. Upon enrolling with Dia & Co, I filled out an extensive survey asking me about my clothing size/weight/height, price range, and also my style likes and dislikes. Every month my stylist selects five pieces that could be clothes or accessories to try out. If I like them, I have the option of buying them. There is a $20 per month service fee, but the fee can be applied to any purchases I opt to make. A 25% discount is applied if I chose to keep all five pieces too!
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 & Co may be entirely different than mine!

Dia & Co April 2020 Review
That Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month got an update! Now it comes as a sleeve so you can pull out the message and attached invoice. Wild! Looks rather chic, though, I must say!
Enclosed is a kind message from my stylist, Kristin S. Kristin told me about herself, like that she has two kids, an Aussie dog, and that she is big into sports, cooking, and fashion! I do find when working with a stylist for some time, you do build up a bit of a friendship-- even though it is through feedback responses to boxes. I requested in my feedback some loungewear since I am working at home for both of my jobs during the current situation and a cute summer dress that would be comfortable for quarantine during warmer months.
The other form is an invoice that has a detailed list of the brand, name, color, size, and price of each item she selected for me along with the grand total after the styling fee and 25% off (if I opt to keep all five items) is applied. My prices aren't listed, so this form is a bit inaccurate. The total would be $289. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $201.75! The savings would be $87.25 if I did decide to keep everything! That isn’t too shabby! That is like keeping The Sabrina Collective dress for free! What a deal!
Snowberry Cropped Sweatshirt in Black, Size 2x — Retail Value $55
This may come as a surprise to you guys, but I lack loungewear in my wardrobe. I have loads of clothing I wear to work, out on the town on the weekends, and for special occasions. I have leggings (thanks to reviewing Fabletics!), but no sweatpants. Hoodies, I haven't owned in one in about ten years. I lived in one during my college years-- of course it was covered in pins and patches! I was extremely excited to see Kristin included this top for me! This piece is so incredibly comfortable! The fabric is wonderfully soft and stretchy. I love the wide kangaroo pocket in the front and the thumb holes on the sleeve! I wore this top to go out on my big Costco Run last week-- I was able to stuff gloves and my phone in the front pocket without any issue. Our weather has been all over the place and this hoodie is wonderful for our MANY rainy days! I never knew I wanted or needed a top like this, so thank you, Kristin!
Gates Velvet Jogger, Size 3x — Listed Value $55
I added these joggers: I figured they might be a nice departure for me! All my pants are skinny leg style and rather form-fitting. For some reason I expected these to be a bit roomier or oversized even-- nope, they are on par with my other form-fitting pants and leggings. They fit me, but my main complaint is I wish they were a bit higher waisted-- my big ol' tushy needs some extra coverage! Otherwise, these velvet pants are rather comfortable and look great paired along with the Snowberry cropped sweatshirt!
Recover Jogger in Charcoal Grey by Solspry, Size 2x — Listed Value $65
These are the other joggers I opted to select for this month's box. I am in love with these pants! I was concerned initially the 2x would not fit me, I usually need a 3x bottom-- but these fit like a dream. They are roomy, cozy, and I especially love the cut and the tapered ankle detail. I styled these joggers with one of my favorite T-shirts, Reebok sneakers, my faux leather biker jacket, and some Wherelight.com retro style glasses to create a cool, but comfy look. Add in a bag of Trader Joe's elote corn chips, some queso dip, a big comfy couch, and some Netflix and I am off for some feel-good vibes I tell ya!
Carnation Maxi Dress by Meri Skye, Size 2x — Retail Value $49
This is the third item I selected for my Dia & Co box this month: the Carnation Maxi dress by Meri Skye. My new uniform for work has become caftans, muumuus, and maxi dresses. I figured this dress would be not only comfortable, but beautiful on. I wasn't wrong-- I absolutely adore this piece! The fabric is immensely soft and has ample stretch. This dress is perfect for summertime too! I imagine wearing it with embellished sandals and a light jean jacket on cooler summer nights as well for my days in my home office at work!
Bailey Printed Dress by Sabrina Blue, Size 2x — Retail Value $65
This piece is one of the two items that my stylist selected for me-- and I am in L-U-V! This dress has one of my favorite colors: vibrant lime green! The fabric is slinky and stretchy allowing the dress to perfectly hug my curves! I also love the opposite chevron-like pattern at the waist. It adds definition and breaks up the floral pattern in the best way! Kristin included this for a springtime wedding, but I don't foresee any weddings for me in the near future with all that is happening. I will however wear this for a stroll in the park with my boyfriend or if we decide to do an outdoor picnic to get some fresh air!
Verdict: Dia & Co remains one of my favorite boxes to review! This month's box was filled with great lounge items I know I will get so much use of in the next couple of months! I also love the items my stylist selected for me! This month was a home run for sure! My stylist, Kristin S., took into account all my feedback I provided and sent pieces I absolutely love! I cannot recommend enough to provide feedback monthly with every Dia & Co box. I also suggest creating a Pinterest as a mood board for your stylist to derive inspiration for future boxes (this applies to all subscription service-- providing a visual is so helpful)! One thing I love about Dia & Co also is that you now can select up to three items of the five you receive in your subscription box! This ensures you get pieces you will cherish! Dia & Co also offers options to exchange pieces you don't like as well-- this is to ensure you get items you will love adding to your wardrobe. I know I appreciate Dia & Co-- they are helping me look fresh even during this whole situation! Since we can't go to the mall now, having items handpicked and delivered to my door has become something I look forward to now! I am excited to see what items they will offer for the summer months-- aren't you too?
