*"During the Victorian era, women started tucking a small grouping of flowers into the top of the bodice of their dresses. This became known as a ‘bouquet de corsage’ or a group of ‘flowers of the bodice.’ Women wore them to formal events, especially weddings as, according to ‘A History of Corsages,’ “flowers attached to the bodice would help scare off any evil spirit that might curse the impending marriage to failure. The phrase was eventually shortened to ‘corsage.’ The placement of the corsage changed by the dawn or the 20th century, moving from the bosom to the shoulder. When women’s fashion brought in strapless and spaghetti strap dresses, the corsage moved to the wrist, which is where it is often seen on teens attending prom."
