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 July 2020 Review
That Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month now comes as a sleeve so you can pull out the message and attached invoice. Wild! Looks rather chic, though, I must say!
Enclosed is another awesome message from my stylist, Kristin S.! She mentions the shorts I selected and the Stacey top she picked out for me to wear with them! Her notes are always so kind and positive. I truly enjoy these personal correspondences from her and I am excited to see what she sent my way– thanks, Kristin!
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 $220. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $150! The savings would be $70 if I did decide to keep everything! That isn’t too shabby! That is almost like getting the Stacey Split Back Tee and the Seabury Cuffed Short for free.
This month, Dia & Co also included these precious postcards! They provided a card with postage so you can send a card to a friend to let them know you care! I love this chain reaction of kindness– it is a beautiful gesture and one so many of us need right now!
Sidney Ruffle Detail Dress by Sandra Darren, Size 2x — Retail Value $49
My stylist, Kristin S., gets that I love pieces with a retro/vintage flair. This dress is no exception to that rule. I love the floral designs in rust, orange, tan, and whites against this black dress. The material has loads of stretch and hits me perfectly– this is a perfect dress to wear at the office (when it is safe to go back!). I even like the ruffled hem at the bottom– it is such an adorable detail! I opted to style this piece with my favorite pointy toe white booties and oversized orange glitter glasses from Wherelight.com. I also envision this looking great in the fall with black tights, black ankle booties, oversized ’70s-style brown tinted lens glasses, a large-brimmed hat, and a tan faux-fur vest for a classic Sonny and Cher era look! I got you, babe– on the killer styling tips!
Stacey Split Back Tee by Molly&Isadora, Size 2x — Retail Value $35
I love the effortlessly cool look of a striped top. I have a sea of striped tops, skirts, and dresses in my wardrobe because they are such classic staples, but also due to their versatility! This light grey and ivory striped version from the Molly&Isadora line takes this classic look to new levels with the diagonally striped pocket on the chest, the keyhole slit on the upper back, and the split at the base. My only complaint is due to my rump being rather wide, the slit just looks a bit awkward how it is stretched out. I wonder if a size up would be a better option so it can be worn in a flowy fashion? I paired this piece with the Bermuda shorts included in this month’s box as well as some Vans high-top sneakers. This is a comfortable dog days of summer ensemble, but imagine how this will look in the fall paired with jeggings, ankle booties, and a pumpkin spice latte in hand, am I right? Not that I am trying to rush summer off, but I am here for an adaptable clothing item, what can I say?
Ava Bermuda Short by In Every Story, Size 22 — Listed Value $49
Last month, I told my stylist I wanted to get some shorts in the July box– and I certainly did. I went and selected the three pairs myself (have I mentioned how much I love that Dia & Co allows you to select up to three of the five items in your monthly box? It is the best!). I love dark rinse jeans and managed to find three very different style shorts in this gorgeous rinse.
This style is a longer Bermuda short style. I love a short-short, but I have found in some instances, what is presentable standing isn’t so much sitting down in certain environments. These shorts provide coverage, but also ensure I will not get any chub rub as well– BIG TIME BONUS! I can easily wear these to the office for a shorts day without a fear in the world! I also appreciate that these have a high waist; I find low waist cuts to be incredibly uncomfortable. These would look great with an actual crop top or a sleeveless button-down, with a tie at the waist to show off a little skin!
Seabury Cuffed Short by Meri Skye, Size 22 — Listed Value $38
These classic dark rinse shorts are just what your girl ordered! These hit me perfectly for the short length and also are rather high waisted. These shorts have stretch, but were a slight bit snug when I initially got them on– but I am certain that they will ease with wear. I found out a neat fact about these Meri Skye shorts on the Dia & Co site as well:
“Did you know that manufacturing a single pair of denim can use up to 2,000 gallons of water? That’s nearly half of what the average American drinks in a year! These shorts are made with fabric that uses 95% less water and energy than the industry standard. They’re also woven with natural fibers such as modal, tencel, and organic cotton.”
Not only are they incredibly stylish and comfortable, but eco-friendly as well! I opted to pair these with a vintage-inspired rainbow-striped crop top, orange see-through jellies, and daisy earrings from a Depop shop called Retro Chic by Annelise.
Scarlett Striped Short by Dex Plus, Size 22 — Retail Value $9
Though I loved all three pairs I received this month, these Dex Plus shorts might be my favorite of the bunch. The fit is spot on: not too tight or loose AND has the right amount of stretch as well! The rinse is perfect and the striping is such a unique detail. I styled the shorts with a golden brown leopard print V-neck shirt and wooden Bad Sandy from Grease heels to bring out that earth tone even further. I think these shorts would look fantastic even in the fall paired with tights, booties, an old vintage band T-shirt, and a faux-leather biker jacket.
Verdict: Dia & Co did it again! I love the pieces I received due to the teamwork effort of myself and my stylist. Sure, I chose the three pairs of jean shorts, but my stylist nailed it on the head with the Sandra Darren dress. I also like the Molly&Isadora top she picked out for me– my only complaint with that one was the top’s fit was a bit too snug for my liking. My stylist has been assigned to me for some time and she truly listens to me and builds on the box what she thinks appeals to me. As always, I strongly suggest providing your Instagram and Pinterest links to ensure you get a truly tailored experience. Like they say, “Teamwork makes the dream work,” and that statement is true when collaborating with your stylist as well! I also take advantage of the option to select three of the five items for myself. I have particular tastes and love to shop, so this is a great feature for me. You can shop directly on the site and they even offer an activewear box too (which is great for quarantine loungewear!). I love getting the subscription box, especially during the pandemic. It is been a constant in a time where everything has been turned upside down. I cannot wait to see what I get in my August Dia & Co box, can you?
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Dia & Co curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available.

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.
