Plus Size Shopping Review: Dia & Co.
I know that it can feel overwhelming when you are trying to shop for plus size clothing online. There are so many more plus size brands and stores than there were even 10 years ago. But, with options can come confusion! Which is why I am starting a new blog series where I dive a little more in-depth with a review of various plus size stores. While I may have worked with any of these brands/stores in the past on collaborations, these blog posts are not sponsored, and are my own opinions (unless otherwise stated).
As always, my blog may contain affiliate links that help to support my work at no cost to you. I appreciate you!
Now, a review of Dia & Co.!
What is Dia & Co.?
So instead, I co-founded Dia&Co in 2015 as a way for women just like me to embrace their individuality. It grew out of a personal need and now, Dia&Co is a place where everyone can explore all the incredible things that style can really do.
My Experience with Dia & Co
I actually signed up for the Dia Style Box way back in 2016, and LOVED IT. However, I was working in a job where I wore a uniform and quickly realized I didn’t need monthly styles delivered since I hardly wore anything else. I’ll go more into the style box concept later on, though!
Fast-forward to 2020 and I was asked to collaborate with Dia and was SO excited to see that they now offered an extensive selection of ‘a la carte’ items you could purchase on their own. This was a great addition considering that so many people want to be able to select their items individually rather than be surprised in a box.
Three Ways To Shop: Boxes, Bundles, and Piece by Piece
Originally Dia was a styling box subscription service (which they still offer) but they have since diversified a lot.
If you are looking for professional help with your wardrobe, this is where its at. The service is exceptional because Dia caters exclusively to plus sizes. Which means that your stylist will be experienced in selecting items for your shape and size. I loved using the service when I tried it. My stylist allowed me to send a lot of inspiration, and she sent pieces I loved. Don’t love something in your box? Not a problem. You just try them on at home and if you don’t like something, send it back in the bag they provide.
Most style subscriptions have mediocre plus size options, if any at all. The fact that Dia is committed to helping plus size bodies dress fashionably and comfortably is what makes them so good at their job. Its also really worth mentioning that this service really can make your shopping / dressing experience easier! My stylist found me things I probably wouldn’t have picked on my own, and brands I didn’t know, but ended up loving. Plus you can tell them about things you have and love and/or occasions you need to dress for and they have your back.
The bundles are relatively new to the Dia site but OMG they are probably my favorite way to shop on a budget right now. They take multiple items that create head to toe looks, put them together for you (hello, easy outfit ideas!) and give you an AMAZING price on them. I already have TWO head to toe bundles from them and I love them both so much.
I should also mention that I have a promo code they let me share which is HOTPINKANDGLITTER15 which works for 15% off your first purchase (YES, you can combine the bundle discount with the % off).
Rating: HELL YES.
If you want to try some new things, get GREAT quality items, but are on a budget, this is WHERE ITS AT. Like sorry to yell but I love them so much. I also love that its like a ‘mini’ box concept. Somebody else does all the work of putting a cute outfit together for you and voila! You look fabulous.
Also, I found some of my HOLY GRAIL jeans from one of these bundles (as shown with this zebra sweater above).
