Today’s review is brought to you by guest author, Tramisha Poindexter. Tramisha is my business partner at The Moovment and long-time friend. Dia&Co approached me with an opportunity to review one of their subscription boxes. I am no where near a plus size and the first person I could think of was Tramisha. She has been wanting to get into blogging so this is her opportunity to introduce herself to this part of my world.
I am so glad she could give us some love on Schimiggy Reviews! Tramisha has so much to offer and I am honored she is here today. Thank you!
Dia&Co is a apparel subscription box service for plus sized women. Their products are currently for women sizes 14+. Their extended size pieces are meant to flatter any body while also being affordable and forgiving on the wallet. Dia&Co was created by Nadia Boujarwah because she couldn’t find fashions that fit her plus sized body. She knew other women were probably having the same issue. Through Dia&Co she was able to curate various brands and offer a selection of plus size clothing for women who wanted to be fashionable without breaking the bank.
Dia&Co just recently released an activewear subscription service, furthering what they can offer to the extended sized fashionista.
How Does Dia & Co Work?
When you sign-up for Dia & Co, you will complete your style profile. Stylists from Dia & Co will curate an outfit for you based on your preferences and size. Within a week a box should show up at your door with 5 curated items. You only pay for the items you want to keep. Everything that you don’t like will be sent back to Dia & Co to find a new home.
Dia & Co costs $20 for a fashion consultation. This fee is charged even if you return all the items from your box. If you wish to keep the items, then the $20 fee goes towards the purchase of the items you keep.
Dia & Co Review & Unboxing
Before we begin, I will disclose my measurements:
- Bottoms: size 20
- Top: size 22
I received the box within 3 days after ordering it. It came in a brown cardboard box with a huge Dia&Co logo printed on it. The box is made of recycled materials. The box is big and durable, so I will reuse this box to store seasonal belongings. It can be recycled if you wish not to keep it.
Below is a list of what I received in my box:
- No Brand: Mallory Crossbody Purse (Tan)
- Morgan & Walker: Windsor Shorts (Olive Green)
- East Adeline: Chrissy 3/4 Sleeve Cut Out Knotted T-Shirt (Purple)
- East Adeline: Orlando Wrap Dress (Black & White)
- Cameo: Rachel Off The Shoulder Top (Navy & Orange)
What Pieces I Liked Most
Pieces That I Would Pass On
Do I Recommend Dia&Co?
The cost of the items depend on how you answer your style quiz. My items were in the mid-price range. I’ve listed the prices below for each item in the box:
- (no brand): Mallory Crossbody /Tan…..$38
- Morgan & Walker: Windsor Short / Olive Green…..$55
- East Adeline: Chrissy 3/4 Sleeve Cut Out Knotted Tee/ Purple…..$45
- East Adeline: Orlando Wrap Dress/ Black & White…..$65
- Cameo: Rachel Off The Shoulder Top /Navy & Orange…..$52
For keeping all the items in the box, you’d also receive a 25% full box purchase discount, making the total for all the items in the box (including the discount) only $191.25 for 5 items. The $20 styling fee is then credited towards anything you keep. So that’d bring the total down to $171.25!
Pros of Dia & Co
Definitely a GREAT idea. No matter your size , some people just don’t like trying on clothes in stores. Another reason this is a great idea, some folks don’t have the time and leisure to go shopping and style themselves. The personal stylist gave me pieces that I could play with. I was not obligated to keep anything if I did not like it. I also love that the $20 styling fee was credited to my purchase if I decided to keep anything from the box.
Cons of Dia & Co
