Re: Which Uniforms Do You Prefer
The velour was chosen because it looked good under the lights. But the costumes were dry-cleaned every night, and the velour shrank and had to be constantly altered. That's why they switched to polyester.
I liked the velours, but the polyesters showed off their physiques better.
