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.

Sores and MORE Pain EMG
I wrote a comment under my August 17, 2013 comments regarding the results of my September 3, 2013 EMG "Toxic Metabolic". September 17, they are going to biopsy the sores which have not healed since I had the horrific reaction in February 2013 from wearing the tc clothing.
Black stains all over bottom of my feet .
I put the ankle Tommy Copper sock on both feet for the day, when evening came I removed the ankle socks and discovered that the bottom
Of my feet were stained black . I took the socks and placed them in my sink to wash them thinking it was dirt from warring them for the day,as
I turned on the water in the sink the water turned dark purple right away
The socks were bleeding this color , I tried to remove the stains from my feet with soap and water, nail polish remover, turpentine , acetone. And Clorox, I still have black stain on the bottom of my feet this has been a week, I know some dyed fabrics are unhealthy for the body. I have taken photos of the dye in the sink and of my feet. What to do next I'm not sure. All I can say is I will never use this product again . I will show this to my lawyer and seek his council. I feel this staining is permanent on my feet it's still there as strong in color as the first day I discovered
Sores and MORE pain
I have been in contact with the Tommie Copper Co since April 28, regarding my green skin, sores, edema, itching, burning, much more severe pain since wearing the clothing and they have basically told me to "get lost" and "contact their attorney"
I have seen Doctors, had the pictures of my reaction reviewed by nurses, sent them to the Vasculitis Foundation to see if the sores could be from Vasculitis and other medical people and the response from everyone is "Text Book Case" and NONE of them have ever seen anything like my reaction and don't know how to treat it. These reactions started after wearing Tommie Copper clothing.
What ever is put in the copper and the material caused a severe reaction in Feb 2013 and the sores still will not heal. Still having severe problems in my legs and an EMG has been ordered. Having much more difficulty walking since wearing the clothing and my Dr recommended I get a cane.
The clothes are made in slave labor countries and parasites could be packaged in the clothing. The rash/sores on my legs and feet and the sores that will not heal, look like a parasite rash.
The owner of Tommie Copper is NOT interested in your health, ONLY the money he can make. This has been proven to me by how he has treated me and he has all the pictures of my reaction, how my copper level in my blood was elevated AND how the sores will not heal after all these months and still he is NOT the least bit interested in my health.
Lmao go to the store and buy under armor that's all it is... I promise this will not help your pain or our doctors whorls be giving them out... Wake up people
Really cheap and overmarketed. There is no way that many of the positive reviews are not fake ones submitted by the company. If they pay for those silly informercials, they can surely pay kids to plant fabricated reviews.
Tip for Tommy... stop selling and start making an honest product. Otherwise, you'll be gone in another year or two as yet another internet scam.
I will stick to KT tape.
I am a teenage girl raised on sports and athletics, playing soccer and triathlons. I am currently training for my second, an more intense triathlon. My knees ache after every workout and most of the time no matter what, so, despite all the negative comments I had been hearing about Tommie Coppers I decided to try it. I bought two knee compressions, and Although I did all the correct measurements, the band with silicone on it was too tight while the "compression" part was too loose. It has given me no relief. I also tried out KT tape one day at a soccer game when a friend gave me some. KT tape doesn't relive much pain but it prevents it and keeps my knees in place. The Tommie Copper simply sits on my leg and does nothing but get in the way and irritate my skin.
If it Quacks like a Duck...
Trying to relieve knee pain by putting copper on your knee is like trying to relieve a stomach ache by rubbing pepto bismal on your belly. Please people, think! read! research!
Just a plan lie
I thought you could trust Monte but belive me when I say TRUST NO ONE.
I have been scamed on a couple of pian remedys.
These Hollywood types will say anything for money and could care less if the product works or who they scam.
Tommie Copper is the most expensive underware you will ever buy.
IT DID NOTHING!!!!
Tried to order on the phone. This after reading the reviews, good and bad. I don't learn from other peoples mistakes I guess. Wanted two produces, one each mens shorts and knee brace. Lady taking order said, "most people purchasing Knee Brace purchase two. My response, that's nice but I only want one. We go to the mens shorts, and she again tried to sell me on more. I said quite emphatically I only want one pair of shorts, and one Knee Brace. She continued with her " I do understand BUT... " I then told her she can take my order the way I give it to her or I would hang up. She continued with the "I do understand, BUT..." What about I'm going to hang up don't you understand. "I'm just trying to explain...." Click. I would not do business with these Scam Artists for anything. I just saved myself about $75.00. I will purchase a similar product. Just not from Tommie Copper. Bad news.
WHAT IS LESS THAN A ZERO STAR? THAT'S WHAT THIS DESERVES
Stay away from this product, it is a piece of shit. Funny how their website has only unbelievable ratings, how many horrible ratings did they have to delete to make it look only positive? I could wrap my knee in plastic wrap and it would work better than this cheap garbage. The material is so thin, it would be virtually impossible for it to make a difference with pain.
The band at the top of the sleeve is such that it squeezes your leg and tricks you into thinking you're feeling less pain when really it's just cutting off your circulation. Please note: I did NOT buy the wrong size, I measured my leg exactly where it said to and I bought the corresponding size. The silvery part that covers where you're actually feeling the pain doesn't really compress anything because it fits loose compared to the tight band sitting above the affected area. Proper knee sleeves that actually work are not made like this, the tommie copper sleeve is a poor excuse for pain treatment - don't waste your money. Instead, buy something on Amazon that actually has verified high stars and reviews, not fake reviews from their own employees.
Much cheaper ways to solve the problem, stay away from these people
I actually wrote a review on here before about the product, and the poor service and how they wouldn't take their own coupons and did a long breakdown of how much they were costing themselves. I am sure you can still find it here among the many.
I am writing now to suggest an alternative. Someone else suggested using other types of compression clothing. I can tell you that I have purchased some Nike products, Under Armor, Champion, and a few others. All were much cheaper. In fact, there is a company called East Bay ( bad customer service, but product is good). The shirts were on special for between $9 and 35, pants or tights were about $20-30 and shorts were about $11-30. I have a metabolic disease and my body doesn't regulate temperature anymore or blood pressure. I used to wake up every morning with a huge migraine headache and had many other problems - and still have many since the condition is terminal. However, I have found by using different products on different days depending on temperature, etc.. such as vented shirts vs. non- vented, I can honestly say the difference is amazing. I think I have had two headaches in the last 2-3 months now. I also have less problem with the body temperature and blood pressure, and sleep better also. So, I can say that compression products will work for many (maybe not everyone) but you can try a set from Amazon, Target, Walmart, or many other stores for about $25-35 and see for yourself. One thing I know for certain, I would never buy from this company who could care less about the people and don't stand behind their own offers.
I got the answer
All of these products are mind over matter. If he told you to put apple in your ass would you do it? If it worked your Dr would prescribe it for you if it sounds to good to true it usually is.
Don't waste your money or time
I ordered these with great hopes after seeing them advertised. That is all it was, a sales gimmick! These had little compression I might as well put my nylons on and got the same effect (my nylons are support hose either). The only compression I felt was the elastic band on top and bottom. Now I am stuck with shipping and handling cost and have to pay to ship back. I wish I would have read real people reviews first now just the tommie coppers testimonials. Lesson learned! Don't waste your money or time on these.
not worth the money!
I bought the shirt, pants, and gloves all in size small. The gloves are too big. (I'm 5' 100 lb's). This is really nothing but expensive long johns. Save your money!!! Wish I would have returned it all!
I purchased the women's compression shorts (according to their size chart) very excited to received and wear them. I wore them every day and only a few nights for two weeks. They were like wearing a second skin, in that you CAN NOT pull the fabric away from your skin AT ALL.
This simple fact resulted in ingrown hairs, I stopped wearing the shorts and returned them with no problem. I had to go the the doctor to have the hairs removed - this left an open cut in my oh so private area, The next few days the Dr. called to tell me I had a staph infection - took a 10 day round of antibiotics, still was swollen, in extreme pain, couldn't wear clothes, couldn't do anything but lie in bed with hot compresses-another round of antibiotics, THEN I was informed I had MRSA...lovely - deadly.
I've just finished 10 nights of putting antibiotic ointment in my nose - YEP I said nose, I have to do this for 30 days, THEN one week out of the next 5 MONTHS that will put me into SEPTEMBER.
Buyer beware....I'm just sayin'
My Dad wore copper bracelets 50 years ago for his arthritis. I will not try this product. Isn't everyone tired of being scammed and lied to right in front of your faces? None of these infomercial stuff works. For instance, the exercise equipment becomes a clothes hanger in your bedroom, basement or wherever one puts it. If any of these things worked --- word WOULD get out quickly. This is a beautiful, free country ! ! However, beware kids --- you're gonna get hit---- by cheaters and losers. I tried a lot of this stuff just for shits and giggles. The ONLY piece that helps is a thing called THE AB ROLLER.
NOT THE AB ROLLER PLUS OR ANY OTHER VARIATION "THEY" tried to make the money off of-----Just some advice for my fellow man and women-----Let the buyer beware-----
DO NOT BUY IT. I orded for my knee to heip with the pain. I had knee surgery 4 months ago and an still in pain. I was hopful it would help a little, but as of today a month and a half later I have not receive anything and it was prepaid on my credit card. Now I am on limited income and really cannot aford to waist money, and this much higher cost than to ones at the stores.
FEEL RIPPED OFF
I think this stuff only works if you really want it to. I got the knee sleeve, and it did absolutly nothing. Mabey it would of worked if I believed in it more. I figure this stuff is a mind over matter thing. But I found it to be a total waste of $35. I tried to give it less than a star, but it wouldn't let me.
Made it worse
Ive been having pains in my wrist (what im hoping is not carpal tunnel from all computer and videogames I do) I have been wearing a regular wrist brace while I work or use the computer but its bulky and restrictive which isnt always a problem but I would like to wear it while I sleep.
I was interested in the Tommy Copper because they seemed more comfortable and compression sleeves in general have good reviews. So I figured even if it isnt te mirricle they say it is, how badly can they screw up a compression sleeve?
I ordered a medium (used their size chart) When I first put it on my immediate thought was that it was comfortable but it didnt seem like it provided any support at all. I wore them for maybe about 3 hours before going to bed. I slept with them on.
When I woke up, my wrists were so soar and stiff. Even my hands and fingers were stiff. Touching the area on my wrist where they were they felt like I had bruised the entire area.
I took them off for a while and put it back on. After a few minutes I couldnt wear it anymore.
Its been over an hour since I stopped wearing them, Ive been stretching my wrists and fingers, rotating my wrists, trying to get this stiffness to go away.
At first I was going to keep them even if they didnt reduce my pain, but I cant even wear them at all, hopefully I dont have a problem returning them.
I work for 7-11 store warhouse and my job needs me to use my arms including my elbow and I work an every day shift of 16 hours daily i bought the T.C. sleeve and still feel like shit
