About Tommie Copper
Tommie Copper, found online at TommieCopper.tv, is a new brand of copper infused compression wear that claims to be able to help anyone of any age improve their daily aches and pains associated with muscle and joint inflammation.
Tommie Copper specializes in compression wear for a variety of joints in your body, from arm sleeves to knee braces to ankle braces to full shirts. They even offer gloves and shorts, so literally no joint is left untreated. Montel Williams, celebrity spokesman for MoneyMutual, is also a representative for Tommie Copper, even recently promoting the brand on the Dr. Oz show.
Copper is believed to be able to treat inflammation, which is the issue behind common joint pain and arthritis pain. It is also believed to help stimulate the immune system, repair injured tissues, and promote healing in general.
In addition to the copper, Tommie Copper claims that their compression wear is better able to provide benefits to their wearers than other compression items due to its actual wearability.
Compression stabilizes muscle tissue, which keeps swelling fibers at a manageable level, and increases oxygen blood flow to the muscles. However, compression wear is only effective when it is being worn, so comfort is a key factor.
Tommie Copper says their products are specially designed to be comfortable so that they can be worn for longer periods of time, therefore giving their wearers the maximum amount of comfort and relief from aches and pains.
Tommie Copper offers a 30 Day Comfort Challenge to new users. If you the item you order does not provide relief within 30 days, you may return the item for a refund, no questions asked.

no more knee pain walking down stairs
For years I have had knee pain walking down steps, or hills. never going up, and never on level ground, and for some reason, it never hurts when I'm running. My chiropractor thought it might be related to the tendons around my kneecaps loosening up with age and inactivity. Mostly, inactivity.
I decided to by the TC Knee Sleeves after watching Montel Williams shill for them in the middle of the night. An insomnia purchase, if you will.
I'm glad I did, though, because when I wear these, they must just compress my knees and hold my kneecaps in place enough that it doesn't hurt to walk down the stair case in the morning.
I don't wear them 24/7, either. Only during the day.
Totally worth the $29.95 purchase price. I wish I'd bought them years ago.
Awaiting my return of the correct size shirt 2x!
Over a month has passed and no 2x sized shirt has been sent to me!! Why?
Nurse with knee that needs replacing surgery!
I have received the pants knee sleeve and top, work on my feet 8 hours a day in an assisted living facility, wear my TC to work and have no pain in knees or back when wearing them prior to my TC was in a level 8 pain with them an 2 in pain, my knees are in very bad shape and I am 48, I would highly recommended these products.
Im having knee issues from playing golf so I bought 2 knee sleeves. I put one on my sore knee and after only 9 holes I have blisters that circle my leg. The size is correct so I plan on returning them.
Do I or Don't I
I have pain in my inner elbow, be it tendinitis or golfer's elbow (I don't golf) but my job requires lifting all day. I went to an orthopedic surgeon who of course took an x-ray, The x-ray showed what i thought, nothing, and I never went to med school. A friend who is a golfer developed same thing. He said the day after a round he could hardly move it. the Dr. told me it wasn't golfer's elbow being the pain didn't run down my forearm and it didn't for my friend either
I wear a epicondylitis dual compression clasp from Epi Sport with does not help. My chiropractor told mt about kinesio tape which pro athletes use (seen it on woman tennis players). Even tried the clasp over the tape.
I will still have to do more research, like checking out the two Dr's from the infomercial.
If anyone has or had the same problem, I would appreciate any input.
More help than review
I ordered Tommie Copper compression tights for my wife. She suffers from fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis her self. It has been know for centuries that copper has an effect on joint pain. This is not new technology, for all you nay say'ers this will be more of a history lesson and hopefully educational. She was given some compression socks by the only doctor that seemed to have a clue what was going on. Compression is intended to force blood into areas that normally would be starved of it. By doing so it carries nutrients and other chemicals your body needs to rejuvenate its self. Tommie Copper has brought the best of both worlds together in one convenient package. For you people that are having a reaction to them, check with manufacturer first. Don't take my word for it as they could deny any warranty. Put a cup of white vinegar into a cold wash cycle, set it on med water level and run through delicate wash cycle this will stop your problem. The reaction you are have is due copper acetate, the acid in your body is reacting with not only the copper but probably everything. It usually causes little pimples. Hope this helps, and for you nay say'ers. Don't care what you have to say. My wife not crying her self to sleep says it for me. And from what I can tell of you, the fart I just let is talking more intelligent crap than you!
I have worn a simple pharmacy bought knee sleeve at work (construction) for 2 years.It is definitely helpful so I was excited to try this Tommie Copper knee sleeve. Boy, was I wrong. Within Two days my knee began throbbing and I stopped wearing it. After a week with the old sleeve, everything was back to normal. This thing is a joke. It does NOT work. Don't believe a word Montel says about this product. My fit was perfect so it wasn't that either. Your better off cutting the toes off a sock and using that! These snake oil salesman are ripping us off. THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK.........NOT EVEN CLOSE TO WHAT IT CLAIMS!!!!
Dear knee pain
It took me awhile to figure it out but yes I did develope a rash, and it was on my legs , what lead me to the tommy copper was that to days after not wearing them, I still had red marks around my legs, I really like the tommy copper,it help with the pain, but the rash is very painful and hard to get rid of, I didn't catch fast enough and now it's all over my legs
Im sure that some people will have good benefits and others bad but the thing I want to say is: why is it that the people who are benefiting from this getting all worked up over those who are not? Very defensive. Its not like this is guaranteed to help everybody for whatever reason. I don't see why some are getting upset with others because they don't work for them. That's really stupid. The more we advance thru time the more ignorant people get..
hand gloves (openfingers), elbow and wrist
I love tommie copper products. This is second time I have ordered the gloves. I had ordered and used the shirt before. Still have that. My gloves have had it because I power lift and the gloves have finally gotten worn. They worked so well for me, that i am now ordering the elbow, the wrist and another pair of gloves. I have arthritis in my joints of my hand and elbows etc. and these products help me so much.
Tendonitis in My Ankle
I have a tendonitis in my Achilles tendon. I bought the ankle garment and wore it for just over a month with no improvement. I find its so loose fitting, its like wearing a dress sock...no compression whatsoever. I recently purchased a compression garment from the pharmacy that was half the price (and I didn't have to pay shipping charges) that seems to be helping...it was painful the first day, but I find my ankle is hurting less and I have more support with the tighter fitting garment.
total skeptic amazed
i had lots of pain in my knees that made life miserable. Saw the Tommie copper add and told myself that this couldn't possibly work. But after limping to bed and not sleeping that night from the pain I got up and ordered the knee sleeves expecting to send them back after a week. But after just a few hours of wearing them the pain was drastically reduced. Within a month the pain was gone. I still can't believe that something so simple works but it does. Any time I feel my knees start to hurt I put them on and walla the pain goes away. No pain pills or creams ever came close to my Tommie coppers. I now have shirts and gloves. Thank you Tommie copper you gave me a life without pain.
Tommie Copper Compression sleeves
My friend just recently had both his hamstrings removed....he started wearing Tommie Copper compression apparel all over his body ....needless to say, he qualified for the Boston Marathon and it's all because of Tommie Copper....Thanks, Montel!!
Don't know if they work or not but the gloves I ordered came a part when I first tried them on. They came a part at the seams and the thread seemed to be rotten. They were the proper size. You would think that at the cost they could at least use good thread and do a better job sowing them. I guess they are using sweat shops in China so it should be expected. My other items will also be returned.
Golf elbow and slightly torn bicep
I had wore in the past a elbow strap with gel to cushion the pain playing golf.
Tried the Tommy Copper Elbow Compression Sleeve hoping it would be better than the elbow strap.
I could not believe no pain.
Hit my Driver and irons hard(which I could not do with the strap without pain).
It was like I have no Golf elbow or mild tear in the bicep.
Ordered 2 more of the Elbow Compression Sleeve.
Only thing I have notice.
When I take the Elbow Compression Sleeve off, my arm seems to be numb for about 5 minutes.
Have no idea why.
I been having pain in my right knee. Probably from an old basketball injury. I experienced pain from just walking long distance and running. My wife saw Tommie Copper commercial on TV and thought I might try it. I ordered the knee sleeve. It work good. Help support my knee and pain is not completely gone but more manageable. The only problem is the elastic band on top of the knee sleeve. I am not sure if it it made of rubber or some kind of silicone material. I know it was there to help prevent the knee sleeve from slipping down. Anyways, I developed some kind of rash from the band and it was red and itchy. It has some swelling on it. So basically I have a red ring around my thigh. I applied some cortisone ointment on it and it did not help. Do not know what it is. Now I wear the knee sleeve inside out so the band is outside.
I have an old ankle injury and ordered the ankle compression sleeve from Tommie Copper website. I have been wearing it for a couple of weeks and my foot/ankle feels much better, and it helps stabilize my foot and ankle when I run. The sleeve has the heel exposed, but my foot and ankle are supported. It's really good for that extra support without overly squeezing my foot. I just wear it during the day while I'm on my feet for long periods of time or running. I discovered that it's important to get the right size and measure exactly where they say to measure. I will be ordering the socks over the calf for more comfort while running. At first I thought they compression clothing was pricey, but checking in the sporting stores, so are they. I like the stretchy material. It is somewhat like spandex, but comfortable for me. I don't usually watch infomercial, but that night I had insomnia. Good thing! That is my experience only.
Poor shipping and customer support
I can not review the product as I have not received my item that I purchased. Placed order on January 4, 2014. Paid additional for 2 day delivery. It's now January 10th and still no items. Customer service will not return calls. Filed claim with Paypal as I used this method for payment. Product may be great as claimed. Guess I'll never know
