From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Corsage refers to the bodice of a dress. In the 19th century, corsage was a common term for a woman's bodice or jacket.

In modern usage, corsage is often confused with a corset, but a corset is tighter. A bridal corset is often a corsage.

Originally, a bouquet of flowers, flower bud, or a bow was worn on the corsage between the breasts, hence the name corsage for a cluster of flowers worn on the breast, waist or wrist.

Recently, it is a cluster of flowers given to one's date at a prom or formal dance to wear on either a dress or a wrist.
