According to the Hollywood blog Tom Cruise was wearing a girdle on the day of his wedding. Janet Charlton says;

Here's a juicy little secret that Tom Cruise might kill us for telling you. Oh well, here we go- Tom was wearing a GIRDLE under his tuxedo at his wedding! In case you haven't noticed, Tom packed on around twenty pounds in the past few months before the big event. He says he's a "nervous eater." And he's had a lot to be nervous about - his exit from Paramount and his high octane marriage. When Tom arrived in Rome, we hear that Giorgio Armani was apoplectic because the wedding tux was too small. Armani personally tended to all the fittings while Tom's pants were let out and various details were adjusted. Tom wanted to look svelte so he didn't protest when Giorgio suggested girdling Tom's midsection so the jacket would fall properly. The corset was sewn into Tom's undergarment. Everyone was sworn to secrecy, but those Armani employees love to gossip, and are we grateful for THAT!

Whether he was indeed wearing a girdle is pure speculation but girdles for men are much more popular than most people realize. Here's the best selling men's girdle on Amazon. It's called the Mens Belly Buster Athletic Supporter Girdle. It provides " maximum compression throughout the mid-section eliminating unsightly love handles while supporting your back. A side hook and eye closure makes adjusting the amount of compression easy."
