Dia & Co Plus Size Subscription Box Review – May 2016

. The links in this post may be affiliate links. Read full disclosure

Dia & Co is a monthly personal styling subscription for plus-sized women. It’s pretty much just like Stitch Fix for plus sizes – Fill out your profile and sizing information, pay a $20 styling fee (refundable against anything you choose to keep), and have 5 items selected by a stylist sent straight to your home to try on. Dia & Co includes free shipping each way. If you keep all 5 items from your box, you’ll receive a 20% discount.


The box itself came packaged very neatly, and included a nice quote on the back of my stylist note.

Nude flats? All of my shoes are bright colors or metallic! I love crazy shoes.

It included an invoice showing the price of each item plus my potential discount.


In addition to telling the stylists that I am more of a Classic, Casual, and Retro kind of girl, I also let them know that packability is key due to work travel.  One of the things I think it interesting is they ask you what you DO NOT want in terms of colors and prints, instead of asking what you DO want.  I am curious to see how that plays out over time.  It does force me to be more open minded!

What I got:

Junarose Slim Washed Ankle Jeans in Gray, Size 16 $119

Zenobia Long Sleeve Chiffon V-Neck in Royal (2X) $36

Junarose Slim Washed Ankle Jeans

Hooray! I was really hoping for a pair of non-denim jeans for the summer.  I just picked up some new denim, but I wanted some lightweight and light-colored pants, too.  These Junarose fit pretty well and I love the color. I am not in love with the zippers (they make rolling them up weird), but I’ll get over it.  Finding pants that fit my middle is too hard to pass up.

Tall girl problems. I usually need a 33″ inseam, I suspect these are 32″.

And I love this top!  It’s a great color and perfect for me to wear to work or hang around in during the spring and summer.  It’s a lightweight chiffon – I do think it is just sheer enough that I may need a camisole under it.  The lace detail makes it feel more special than just another long sleeve top, but I can’t see the lace, so I don’t feel too girly.  I am like an ostrich – if I can’t see it, it isn’t there.

Mikarose Lace Short Sleeve Top in Maroon (XXL) $29.99

Cute, a little short to wear with pants, but a good length to wear with skirts.  The gathering on the sleeves makes this feel a little dressier, too.  I like this one, but I don’t love it.Mikarose Lace Short Sleeve Top

Oddi Palley Top in Navy (XL) $39

Bailey Infinity Scarf $27

The top fits, but I definitely don’t love the cut.  The fabric is nice – soft knit jersey, a heathered blue grey, which I do like.  Alas, I feel exceptionally frumpy in this.  I am not a big fan of seams up the middle of tops.


Bailey Infinity Scarf

Lovely, nice and light infinity scarf. But this thing is just begging for me to dribble soup on it.  I eat a lot of soup.  A lot.  One of my friends always jokes when she comes over that my cat smells like soup.  So I avoid white on top. If the colors were reversed, I might have kept it!
I think my stylist heard my feedback from last time – these tops were mostly longer, and they found me grey jeans that fit, so they get major points for that. I am wearing the jeans as I type this. 🙂  I am definitely looking forward to more fun next month.
