* Fanny Price subverts this trope in Creator/JaneAusten's ''Literature/MansfieldPark''. She is extremely gentle, passive and the doormat of pretty much everybody around her until they try to force her into marrying the man she doesn't love. Her firmness on this point makes her not quite a true lady, as her uncle spells out:

** Sofia Löwenström in ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}'' is beautiful and demure and pretty much flawless, thus basically perfect according to the standards of the 1880s.
** Venus Dag och Natt in "De skandalösa" is pretty much a 17th century version of this, and she's just as beautiful and demure and near-flawless as Sofia from above. She kind of is an subversion though as she turns out to be gay, which would have been a negative trait in this era.

A Proper Lady is a gentle yet strong being, [[IncorruptiblePurePureness incorruptible]] and [[ChasteHero pure as the driven snow]], as unlike TheVamp as she comes, and Madonna-like in her virtues. She sacrifices herself for the good of her family, religion, and country. She is intelligent enough to [[ApronMatron smoothly run a household]], and [[TheConsigliere wisely spends her husband's money]] for the good of her family, never guilty of negligence or selfish frivolity. She possesses the wit, taste and esprit necessary to be [[{{Socialite}} a star of Society]], and never crosses the border of good taste and civility. She is devoted and loyal, never treacherous or scheming. Her manners are never less than impeccable, and her good will and charity are a beacon to those lucky enough to live around her. She is perfectly groomed, likely [[BeautyEqualsGoodness beautiful]] or at least comely (while the female antagonist will be [[BeautyIsBad more beautiful]] and [[EvilIsSexy appealing]]). However, [[TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside more important than her personal looks is her gentle smile]]. Because small size is endearing (and allows for protective embraces from her lucky husband or fiancé), she will probably be on the shorter side. Chances are that she is an EnglishRose, especially with [[RavenHairIvorySkin dark hair and fair skin]]. ParasolOfPrettiness is a typical prop.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Women of the Vorin religion are expected to be controlled, quiet, and [[HigherEducationIsForWomen scholarly]]. The vast majority of Vorin scholars are women, with the only men being ardents (who are legally genderless). The traditional Vorin dress is the havah, which is form-fitting like a ChineseDress but without any skin showing. One of the oddities of Vorinism is that women are supposed to keep their left hands hidden at all times in a sleeve. This "safehand" is not supposed to be used for anything, so the more higher-class women become very good at only using their right hands. Peasant women just wear a glove.
