Hm, honestly based on the pictures I don't think it looks like velvet at all. It seems more smooth and shiny than velvet usually looks. What about a nice stretch satin (not spandex)? Something like this could have the richness you're looking for, with just a touch of stretch to help with the fit, and moving around in it.
