Dia & Co
2.5 overall rating
74 Ratings | 23 Reviews

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 items 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 items too!

COUPON: 25% Off your first box. No coupon needed - just use this link.

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!

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).

First Impressions

That Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month now comes as a sleeve.

 

Enclosed is an awesome message from my stylist, Melinda H.! She complimented the three pieces that I selected this month and gave some fantastic styling tips too!

 

There’s also 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 $242.00. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $166.50! The savings would be $75.50 if I did decide to keep everything! That would be like getting either of the jumpsuits for free  — that’s pretty fantastic!

Now for the fashions!

Amy Cropped Jumpsuit in Orange and White by Adorned, Size 22– Listed Value $69

 

If yinz couldn’t tell, orange is my favorite color! Once I spotted this jumpsuit, I had to give it a go. The fabric is rather light but doesn’t have a lot of stretch. However, the straps and waistline both have elastic to help adjust the fit. I opted to wear this jumpsuit without anything underneath it with white Mary Janes from Torrid and orange and hot pink flower power earrings from Shop Purple Banana. This would also look awesome with a white t-shirt and sneakers for a more relaxed look. Come cooler months, pair this with a burgundy or brown turtleneck and booties for a look perfect for a visit to the pumpkin patch.

Plus, did I happen to mention… IT HAS POCKETS!

Laura Plus Size Floral Dress by Sandra Darren, Size 3x– Listed Value $59

 

The weather is hot, but it doesn’t mean you still can’t get gussied up in a Summer floral dress! This piece is similar to the jumpsuit by Adorned in that it is sleeveless with elastic straps. The fabric is a bit more of a lightweight crepe material. I am surprised by how much I love this cornflower blue shade– I usually prefer more vivid colors. I opted to pair this beautiful piece with cognac faux wooden platforms. I love how the orange tones on the shoes complement the blue! For the crisper, cooler end of summer nights, wear this with flats and a cardigan. This would also look amazing with mustard yellow shoes and/or a cardigan for a bold, yet comfortable look.

Iris V-Neck Blouse by East Adeline , Size 2x — Listed Value $42

 

This is a top that my new stylist, Melinda, selected for me. I absolutely love the retro print meets the modern ruffled style top. The blue looks great with the baby pink or coral pattern. The fabric on this top lacks stretch, but it has a great cut that fits incredibly well.

 

The top looks best tucked into the skirt that I paired it with, in my opinion. I styled it with a black pencil skirt, baby pink bedazzled hoops, and I can imagine it looking great with skinny leg jeans and Jamie embellished gold flats by B.A.I.T as well.  This would be perfect to wear in an office setting, a date, or a night out with your gal pals!

Allison Sweater in Light Blue by Molly&Isadora, Size 2x— Listed Value $35

 

This sweater is so adorable! I am absolutely loving the blue shade of this top. This could easily be worn all year round with either a skirt or gaucho pants or in Fall and Winter with skinny-leg jeans and booties. The material is not too thick or too thin– it is just right! I decided to style the top with a black pencil skirt, my go-to white Mary Janes from Torrid, and some spring-themed flower power hoops from the Ziggy Pop Shop!

Geraldine Surplice Jumpsuit, Size 2x — Listed Value $69

 

Sadly, the final piece did not fit me, so I could not model it for you all. The print is adorable and has a retro feel, plus I appreciate the collar and sleeveless style on this jumpsuit. However, the fabric has absolutely no give or stretch, so a 2x was in no way going to go over my ample hips. Dia & Co does allow for returns and is rather flexible, but I was late on trying to exchange this piece– it is sold out in every size on the site! Even though this jumpsuit didn’t work for me, I can envision this in the summer with embellished sandals and oversized sunglasses. This could even work in early fall with some off-white ankle booties and a long chestnut-colored cardigan.

Verdict

This month’s Dia & Co had some wonderful items that can be worn in the summer, but also during fall and spring! You know your girl loves a versatile piece that can be worn throughout the year! I loved all the floral pieces, especially the East Adeline top and the Sandra Darren dress. I know these are pieces I will get a lot of wear from this summer. It is a bummer that the Geraldine jumpsuit was a no-go, I will definitely make sure that my profile has updated info regarding my size and fit preferences. I am so pleased that my new stylist, Melinda, seems to have an understanding already of what appeals to me. I never shy away from bright and vivid oranges, yellows, pinks, and greens– I am loving the jumpsuit she sent my way!

I also suggest providing feedback as well as your Pinterest, IG, or sending your stylist direct links from the Dia & Co site as your feedback. Being direct and providing these mood boards helps ensure your stylist can create a more personalized box for you! You also can even customize your entire box as well! That’s right, you can select all five pieces if you want to! I am a shopping fiend, so I  love that option, but I will still try to pick out three or four items max– I love getting at least one or two items that my stylist selected just for me! I have been allowing myself to spend more time with friends and family that are also vaccinated, but I try to still limit the places I go that are indoors. I have gone to the mall a few times since being vaccinated, but I still prefer having awesome fashions delivered to me from the comfort of home! Not only can I have clothes sent to me, but Dia & Co also offers styling box services for activewear, intimate pieces, and now swimwear– but you can also purchase items from the site directly as well! There are so many options– what isn’t there to love about Dia & Co? Are you as excited as I am to see what Melinda sends my way next month?
