"Plush" or "plushy" when decribing someones voice? (1 Viewer)

I believe it would be "plush" but agree that it sounds jarring. Try "lush" instead; it does not seem like a huge difference but rolls easier and "plush" seems to be more appropriate when describing a physical texture whereas "lush" is described as "[FONT=Roboto, Helvetica, sans-serif]very rich and providing great sensory pleasure." You could also use rich or melodious.[/FONT]

Which one makes more sense?

"called out a plush voice from among a nearby group." is what's currently written.

Neither. Posh or maybe cultured. Posh people talk with a plum in their mouth. Nothing plush about it. :)

A lush voice is different. A lush is also drunk.
