Velvet Plus-Size Style Report
[More editor's picks and shopping resources below]

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 skirts, special occasion tops, jackets, dresses, leggings and evening pants.  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. 

Velour is a related fabric with a similar knap and softness. Velours are sometimes referred to as stretch velvets, but stretch velvets used in more formal styles usually maintain the velvet texture.  Both are included here.

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.

Internet Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Velvet Clothing

Velvet is primarily a seasonal fabric.  It is most plentiful from a wide variety of retailers during the fall, winter, and holiday shopping seasons.  Towards the beginning of November velvet starts to appear at major department stores such as Dillard's and Nordstrom which both have especially good plus-size evening collections.

A few retailers, mainly catering to those who appreciate goth or BoHo style fashion, do have a small selection all year.  Among these is Pyramid Collection which carries velvet capes, jackets, tops, skirts, and tops in sizes up to 28W.

QVC, partially due to the depth and span of inventory, can also yield velvet and velour finds all year.  Most things are available up to a 3X (28W) here, as well.

Those who enjoy art deco inspired cut velvet opera coats and kimonos will find a selection all year at a long established eBay boutique: Maya Boutique.

Designer quality BoHo fashion that often uses velvet in their plus-size looks, especially in the winter months, is Johnny Was which is frequently well represented at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
