My first Dia & Co Subscription Box

Dia & Co is a subscription box that features women’s plus sizes 14+, including activewear. You can choose to receive a box every 2-3 weeks, every month, or every other month. There is a styling fee of $20, and the fee goes towards your purchase if you choose to keep anything from your box.

I’ve seen their commercials on TV and their ads online and have been interested in trying the service for a while. After realizing how dull and lackluster my wardrobe is, I decided to take the plunge and create an account.

If I’m being completely honest, I’m horrible at dressing myself. I don’t have a set style that I like, and I tend to go with whatever seems like a “safe” choice because I have no clue what colors or shapes look good on me. This translates to matching shoes and accessories with my outfits, too.

I don’t like drawing attention to myself, and I feel like vibrant colors and patterns might draw eyes. While it might be a good type of draw, my anxiety often leads me to believe the opposite. It’s weird, but sometimes I feel like I can’t wear certain colors or types of clothing because of how I look. Based on my first ever experience with Dia & Co, I’m confident that that will change soon.

The fact that an actual person is picking out my items based on the style questionnaire I filled out while I was setting up my account on Dia & Co’s website really appeals to me. There was even a section on the questionnaire where I was able to enter any specific requests or preferences. I let them know that I would love to have more business casual clothing for work, and the occasional dressy piece for date nights.
 

Opening my subscription box

Dia & Co Subscription BoxI was very excited to open my Dia & Co subscription box this week! I was at work when I received their notification that my box was delivered, which made the wait for the end of the work day feel like forever.

Part of me was nervous because I was worried that none of the items would fit or that I wouldn’t like what my stylist chose for me, but my feelings of worry didn’t linger after I began looking through my box.

Plus, with Dia & Co, you can always send back the items you don’t love, free of charge. Not only that, but you can exchange an item if it isn’t the right size.
 

Carlotta printed blouse by B. Curvy and Melbourne tapered trouser by RWN RawanThe lovely Carlotta printed blouse that I’m wearing in this photo is from B. Curvy. I’m also wearing a Melbourne tapered trouser from RWN by Rawan.

The blouse is thin and flowy, which is exactly the type of top I like to wear. I’m self-conscious about my weight, especially my midsection, so fitted tops are not my friend. This blouse fit perfectly and, despite it having a pattern with a pop of color, which is something I would normally avoid, I liked it more and more the longer I wore it.

The pants are a classic black, which makes it a great choice for my business wardrobe. I mentioned this in my style questionnaire when I created my account, so it’s great knowing that they listen to my preferences.

I have an insanely hard time finding pants that fit well. They’re either too small or too big around the waist, too small or too baggy in the crotch area, or too short or too long. These pants fit great in every one of those areas, though, which I was pleasantly surprised by.

I was eager to try this on because it’s something that I would consider out of my comfort zone. I don’t wear many white pieces, nor do I wear tops that draw your eyes to the tummy area. One thing I hope that comes from my subscription with Dia & Co is to break out of my comfort zone a bit.

While I’m glad that it was included in my box, I don’t think it’s the right top for me. The seam under the bust sits in an odd spot on my upper tummy area, and in my opinion it isn’t as flattering as it could be. I think this shirt would fit better on someone who had more of an hourglass body shape.

This cute cardigan is Prescott New York’s Lynn short sleeve cardigan featuring a lattice back.

I love a good cardigan. Most of my tops have spaghetti or thin straps so I cant wear them to work without a blazer or cardigan.

This one fit great, even in the sleeve area. The fabric is very soft and light, which is great because I’m hot-natured.

This is the beautiful, lattice back of the cardigan.

It’s a nice little detail that adds some flair without being too flashy or over the top.

My picks

I enjoyed trying on each of the items that were in my Dia & Co box this month. The great part is that I got to try everything on in the privacy and comfort of my own home, and I can send back whatever items I don’t want. Shipping is always on Dia & Co!

Curious to see what item(s) I may be keeping from this month’s box?

I had a great first impression and experience with Dia & Co. My stylist did a great job selecting this month’s items, and the sizing and quality of the clothes and clutch were fantastic.

I can’t wait to see what next month’s box has in store!

    What a fab idea – I don’t think we have anything like that in the UK yet. I really like that cardigan πŸ™‚

      There are a few in the U.S. who do this. I’ve been curious to try one for a while now. I liked it too, especially the detail on the back!

        Might come over here eventually then!

    I haven’t seen anything like this before and I’m glad that you were able to find something, whilst feeling comfortable trying on at home.

      I think it’s still a relatively new concept. I was unsure about it at first, but it definitely paid off. πŸ™‚

      Definitely — I love shopping at Torrid, but I don’t really shop for clothes at any other stores.

    Have you every tried any other clothing subscriptions? I tried another one once, but I did not like it. I cannot remember what it was called. I felt like the clothes were really old. I have been on the fence about Dia & CO. I think I might give it a try. I have watched a few unboxings on YouTube. It seems like they are really fashionable clothes.

      No, I havent, but mostly because no others appealed to me and I didn’t know of any others that specifically cater to plus sizes. I was surprised at how high quality Dia & Co.’s clothes are, and they are stylish. Which is hard to find with plus sizes. I definitely recommend it! Let me know if you decide to try it. πŸ™‚
