How much is Dia and Co a month? What are the prices of the items, how much is a full box and how are returns? How does all of that compare to Stitch Fix Pricing?
Full Disclosure: Dia and Co has offered me free boxes, all posts are of my own opinion and ideas though, I have also gotten some credits with Stitch Fix as well.
Dia and Co Cost
The total cost of Dia and Co includes:
- The styling fee
- Garment prices
- Full box price (should you choose to buy the entire box).
What is Dia & Co?
Dia & co is a plus size clothing subscription service. They offer clothing for women size 14 and up shipped right to your door from a personal stylist.
How much is Dia and Co a month?
While there is no requirement to do Dia & Co every month, it is a $20 styling fee every time you order a box (you can have boxes automatically shipped to your home).
That styling fee can be applied to any of the items in the box, but should you choose to keep nothing, you would be still charged the $20 fee.
FYI, this is how most subscription boxes work — and you can read all about that in my review of other plus size subscription boxes.
Honestly, I can’t imagine not having ANYTHING in my box I didn’t like. If you keep anything, the styling fee is essentially free.
To share this I’m pulling out my sweet math skills.
Thank you high school calculus. 🙂
I am taking the average of the 3 boxes I have received, that is a total of 15 items. You can see the boxes in this post: Dia and Co Reviews.
For your frame of reference, the item I have the most of is shirts. I also didn’t get shoes or accessories fro Dia.
I have recently gotten a Dia Active box. Those prices aren’t reflected in this cost below as I think they would vary from regular clothes.
Prices of Dia and Co Shirts
- Prices varied from 45-65 with the average being just under $53.
- Also, keep in mind that if you keep a full box, they give you 25% off everything in the box — that brings the price of shirts to just under $40.
Prices of Dia and Co Pants
- Prices varied from $69-$75 with an average of $73
- Full box price would put that just under $55
Prices of Dia and Co Skirts
- Prices varied from $42-$65, with an average of $53.
- Full box price would be just over $40
Prices of Dia and Co Dresses
- Prices varied from $59-$69, with an average price of $64
- Full box price would be $48
(and guys, I ALWAYS get compliments on my dia dresses!!! They’re one of my favorite parts!)
Dia Box Prices
My Dia boxes averaged $245-$294 for the full box of 5 items. The average of the boxes was $266 — but remember, if you did keep a WHOLE box, you would for sure pay the box price — which averaged out to just under $200.
How much is Dia and Co?
So, if you average the full box price — that puts the average price of garments at $53.
Now, keep in mind that I have requested no shoes, jewelry or scarves. I JUST want clothes.
As a side note: I am to a point in my life where I would MUCH rather have quality vs quantity. If I have some blouses and pants that I LOVE I would rather have 10 of those items, vs 20 of things I don’t love.
And that type of love often requires a bit more cash than something you’d find a Ross or Forever 21. Just keep that in mind as you try it out.
And, if quality over quantity is one of your goals too — try it today!
Stitch Fix Cost
Since I had all those prices pulled-up, I figured I’d average out what I got at Stitch Fix. Keep in mind — my first Stitch Fix box was so bad, I didn’t even record the prices (and everything went back).
Average Stitch Fix Prices:
- Shirts $51
- Jackets/Cardigans $38
- Pants $94
- Shoes $74.50
- Dresses $60
- Full Box Average $313 ($234 with the discount)
Comparing Stitch Fix vs Dia and Co Pricing:
- Shirts: Same
- Pants: Stitch Fix More
- Dresses: Same
- Full Box: A bit more
I do think Stitch Fix gets GREAT pants brands, so their prices tend to be a bit higher. However, I just couldn’t spend $100 on white pants that I’d probably stain within 3 minutes of wearing. Haha.
In the end, I keep returning to Dia and Co because their stylists seem to listen to me. But, see for yourself in my posts:
Dia and Co Returns
With all this pricing talk, I’m sure you want to know how easily returns are — SUPER easy! Your card is never charged for them, as long as you get them back to them within the period they give you (I believe it’s 5 days, which is a bit longer than Stitch Fix).
There is a pre-paid envelope in the box, you just ship what you don’t want back.
BUT, be thoughtful of returns. Often, if it’s just one item, it might be cheaper to keep it and save the 25% on the full box. I have heard there are groups you can sell the items in.
Is Dia & Co Worth it?
In my opinion, yes. I wouldn’t do it monthly. I try to do subscription boxes 2 or 3 times/year (as we only have 2 real seasons here in AZ). They seem to REALLY listen to you (if you do a thorough job of filling it out). Plus, sometimes they offer a free trial, and then you’d be out nothing to try it, and perhaps you’d find a new item that you just love.
