Dia & Co. Subscription Review – July 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 like Stitch Fix, but 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.


Everything arrives neatly folded and wrapped in tissue.


The invoice shows  the price of each item plus my potential discount if I opt to keep all of the pieces.

Each month, your stylist will include a note with tips on how to wear the pieces or integrate them with your existing wardrobe.  Last month, my new stylist (Stacy) did a great job curating my box.   I can’t wait to see her new selections!  (On the card, there’s mention of nude sandals.  These were not in my box.  Not sure what happened there.)


These are the looks that I told my stylist I wear or like via my fashion profile.  I made it a point to emphasize that although I work in an office,  I spend a lot of my work day outdoors and live in Florida where it is VERY humid, so I need clothes that are climate friendly and easy care.  As we get further into the summer, I have requested more lightweight and casual pieces that are suitable for both work and play.  After all, it is vacation season.


Everything in my box!

20160617_205121Lysse – Leanna Dress ($89.00):  I really liked the cut of this dress.  It had a lot of structure and was flattering on.  However, I wasn’t a fan of the pattern and would have kept this if it were a solid color.


Poppy Necklace – gold ($32.00):  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this necklace!  The flowers are super cute and there is a lot of bling.  I have a similar necklace (with bigger flowers), but this feels a bit more casual.

tua top

Tua – Christina Top ($46.00):  This is a great top for the warmer weather.  It is a sheer polyester with a solid back vent panel.  The 3/4 sleeve is versatile, making this wearable from spring through fall.

20160617_205318Lysse – Jennifer Seamed Pant ($98.00):  I am not a huge fan of leggings, but these are a thicker weight pant.  The seam down the front makes them a bit dressier and gives the illusion of a longer leg.  On the Lysse site, these are listed as the Taylor seamed pant and the price is significantly lower.  I’ve emailed Dia for a price match (which they will do for exact product matches).


Zenobia – Ezra Blouse ($42.00):  How gorgeous is that color???  I love coral, and thankfully it  looks good on me.  This is another sheer polyester top that can be worn for work or social outings.  The tab sleeve adds detail to the 3/4 length sleeve.

And now for my catwalk moments…

Leanna Dress – paired with nude flats (vs suggested sandals)
Poppy Necklace
tua top 2
Tua Christina Top – styled with Lysse Seamed pant and white linen pants
Zenobia Ezra Blouse – styled with Lysse Seamed pant as suggested

Another Dia & Co.  win this month.  If the Leanna dress had been another pattern or color, I would have kept the whole box.  Definitely happy with the direction that Stacy is taking.  Factoring in the price matching for the Lysse pant, my total for this box comes to $154.  Not bad for several pieces that can be mixed into my wardrobe easily.  So excited to see what next month brings.  How do you think this month’s selection fared?

    That dress looks amazing on you!

      Thanks for the positive feedback, Kay. I liked the dress, but the pattern reminded me of clouds or acid washed jeans.

  • Kerry

    I also received the lysse pants and love them but balked at the price. What did you need to provide to receive the price match?

      Hi Kerry! Good question. For price matching, email Dia support with the web link for the site where you found the item at a lower price. It has to be a direct match – brand/style, color, and size.

      Usually, either the price tag or one of the inner tags will have a style number listed. I search using the brand name and style #. I’ve found that sometimes the style description on my invoice doesn’t match the one on a site, so using the number to search is more accurate.

        Thanks so much for your guidance! I just emailed support for a price match!
