* In Creator/AngelaCarter's ''Wise Children'', the protagonist and her sister are former dancers who used to have a lot of lovers, now aged; they're determined to defy this trope. When invited to a family reunion, they're nervous about going, fearing that people will pity the decay of their looks; but they dress up showily in a manner that emphasizes their best points (legs last well) and walk in boldly, not sure if the effect is ridiculous or fabulous; some reactions, at least, prove that the latter is the case.

** House Lannister has precedent of of this, if Cersei bothered to pay attention. Her aunt, Genna, was renowned as being the [[UglyGuyHotWife gracefully Hot Wife in her badly lopsided arranged marriage]] before she "mellowed" into her IronLady, LargeAndInCharge, BigBeautifulWoman self today. Although still not painful on the eyes, she's not a relatively willowy sixteen anymore -- and, proud of it!

* After being tricked into wearing a pranked outfit in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11634921/58/Itachi-Is-That-A-Baby Itachi, Is That A Baby?]]'', Professor [=McGonagall=] is reverted back to her early twenties and was apparently a drop dead knockout back then. To her ire, the change is permanent because Harry thought the method to remove the outfit was a flaw and "fixed" it, therefore she's permanently in her twenties and if she doesn't want to go around in lingerie, she has to wear something "slatternly" (in her words).

** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade]]'', Roy's father Lord Eliwood is only in his late 30's, but the stress of being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure ''and'' [[IllBoy his bad health in recent years]] has certainly robbed him of his youthful appearance, causing him to look much more weathered and aged then you would expect. [[http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/5/50/Fe6Eliwood.jpg Here's how he appears in Sword Of Seals]] and to compare [[http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/2/25/Eliwood.jpg how he looked in it's prequel Blazing Sword set 20 years earlier.]]
