In June she won gold on floor exercise (tied with teammate Larisa Iordache) and bronze on beam at the 2013 Anadia World Cup. Her last competition of the year was the Turnen Dames Interland where she won gold in the all-around, balance beam, and floor exercise, and a bronze on uneven bars. She was scheduled to compete at the Romanian National Championships, but she dislocated her kneecap during podium training and needed immediate surgery, taking her out for the rest of the season.

2014

Bulimar's first competition back was the Doha World Cup. She finished in fourth on beam with a 13.650, and she won silver on floor behind teammate Larisa Iordache with a 14.300. She competed at a friendly meet against Belgium and France where she won gold with the team and silver in the all-around.

She qualified for the floor final where she tied with Marta Pihan-Kulesza for fourth. For the second year in a row, Bulimar had to miss Romanian Nationals and the World Championships due to a knee injury.

2015

Bulimar once again made her return at the Doha World Cup. She won a silver on bars with a 13.600 behind Youna Dufournet. She also won a bronze on beam with a 14.025 behind Phan Thị Hà Thanh and Giulia Steingruber.

In April she competed at the 2015 European Artistic Gymnastics Championships and placed 10th in the all-around.

In June, Bulimar underwent surgery on her right knee, causing her to miss the European Games. She returned to competition in September at a friendly meet between Romania and France where she helped her team to the gold medal, competing on bars and beam, and performing her floor routine on a tumble track to facilitate her recovery. At the Romanian Championships at the end of September, she won the bronze medal in the all-around competition along with a silver on the beam. She followed this with good results at the Novara Cup in Novara, Italy, where the Romanian team triumphed over Italy, Belgium and Spain, and Bulimar individually finished fourth and took the bronze medal on beam.

Bulimar was named to the Romanian team for the World Championships along with Larisa Iordache, Anamaria Ocolișan, Laura Jurca, Silvia Zarzu, and Cătălina Ponor. However, Ponor withdrew after having surgery, and alternate Andreea Iridon was put in. On the day before the qualification round, Ocolișan injured her ankle and could not compete. The Romanians were in the first subdivision of qualifications and had a very bad competition, qualifying in thirteenth place and failing to automatically qualify their team to the Olympic Games for the first time since 1966. Their performance was described as a meltdown as everyone except Jurca fell off the uneven bars and they had several falls off the balance beam. Diana fell twice on the uneven bars and finished individually in 56th place after qualifications with an all-around score of 52.591. Nadia Comăneci was interviewed after their performance, and she stated, "It’s not the best year for them. I know they have a few girls that aren't of age who are in the plan for next year's Olympics. There's been a lot of accidents also. It wasn’t very smooth for everybody and psychologically on top of that, Ocolisan's injury hit them hard." Bulimar and her teammates were seen crying afterwards.

In November Bulimar competed at the Arthur Gander Memorial in Morges, Switzerland, a competition in which each gymnast competes on only three pieces of apparatus. She chose to perform on the vault, beam and floor, and won the bronze medal behind teammate Larisa Iordache and Germany's Pauline Schäfer. She followed this with the Elite Gym Massilia meet in Marseille, France, where she performed cleanly to help team Romania to the bronze medal, along with winning the bronze all-around medal behind Russia's Angelina Melnikova and France's Marine Brevet, and winning the gold medal on the floor exercise.

2016

Bulimar competed at the Doha World Cup in March. She finished eighth on the uneven bars with a score of 11.925. In April, she competed in the Belgium Friendly. The Romanian team won silver behind Belgium. She won a bronze medal in the all-around with a score of 55.400. She tied for gold on the balance beam with Belgium's Axelle Klinckaert and Bulimar won gold on floor.

Bulimar was named to the team for the 2016 Olympic Test Event, Romania's last chance to qualify as a full team to the 2016 Olympics along with Cătălina Ponor, Anamaria Ocolișan, Laura Jurca, Silvia Zarzu, and Dora Vulcan. However, Jurca had to withdraw due an ankle injury and was replaced by Andreea Iridon, who also withdrew and was replaced by Maria Holbura. Romania competed in the first subdivision, and they finished seventh out of the eight teams. Bulimar only scored an 11.733 on the uneven bars because of a fall, and Romania had to count her score towards their total. Bulimar's all-around total was 53.940. In a press conference after the competition, Adrian Stoica, the president of the Romanian Gymnastics Federation, announced that the one individual spot Romania had at the Olympics would go to either Iordache or Ponor, leaving Bulimar out of contention.

In May, Bulimar ruptured her Achilles tendon while training floor exercise.
