A corsage traditionally goes on the left side of a woman's outfit. The most common place for a corsage to be placed is just under the shoulder. However, they are sometimes worn on hats or on a wristband.

A corsage is a tiny bundle of flowers that is often worn by women to special formal events like weddings or prom. The corsage is usually brought by the accompanying male date. Corsages can be pinned on a jacket or dress by carefully sliding the attached pin through, or they can be bought with a wristband attached to make wearing them on the wrist simple.
