Velvet Plus-Size Clothing Report

A favorite fabric for the holiday party season, plus-size velvet clothing often is made with a little bit of stretch and consequently is most frequently made of synthetic fibers. It is available in dresses, special occasion tops, skirts and pants, and jackets.  Velour, which is less expensive and has a slightly different feel to it, is sometimes used in more casual garments like track suits and tops.  Velours are sometimes referred to as stretch velvets, but stretch velvets used in more formal styles usually maintain the velvet texture.

Burnout velvets have rich patterns mixing velvet textures with sheer "burned out" spaces.  These are available in either silk or synthetic velvets and rarely have any stretch to the fabric. Hand crafted burnout velvets are the most beautiful and expensive. Cotton velvets and velveteen's are generally heavier than silk velvets and good for day wear such as blazers, skirts and pants. Finally, panne velvets which have a flattened texture and extra sheen have become popular in both dresses and tops with less formal appeal.  These generally are of synthetics with stretch.

Some Style Tribes such as Goth and some Steampunk will purchase and wear velvet all year.  Styles favored by these groups have a romantic, vintage feel with referencing mainly to the Victorian era. BoHo fashion frequently includes velvet looks during the winter months, sometimes mixing it with more casual textures and fabrics such as denim.  Formalwear can use either stretch or non stretch velvets, with the most expensive fabrics in silk.
