Dear Purchasers for Large Chain Stores catering to Plus-Size Customers:
Apparel made of velour is not “stylish” and cannot be made so.
It is not a “must-have for fall,” or for any other season.
It certainly is not appropriate for festive holiday celebrations.
It is not the same as velvet, even if it has a “velvety feel.”
Velour is cheap-looking on anyone, and, on large women, reinforces the stereotype that we are sloppy and lazy.
The only people who should be wearing velour are joggers, high-school gym teachers, people going to sleep on a very cold night, and, occasionally, dancers.
That is all.
