Similar to a trophy wife, only without the appeal. Rarely wears make-up or flattering outfits, opting instead for mom jeans and baggy t-shirts. Travels by minivan, often with beads, a dream catcher or a Hawaiian lei hanging from the mirror. Not likely to have had any augmentation or surgical improvements done, instead believing in "natural beauty." Much less likely to be served with divorce papers upon turning 40.
Wow, look at the lady in curlers driving the Aerostar. That's beyond a second place trophy wife. She's a downright participation ribbon. She should really get that mole on her face checked out!
