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.

Tommie Copper / exspensive rubber Band
I got the tommie copper Knee Sleave about a Month ago . I have had (2 ) two Knee & Joint replacements . I have been advised by my orthopedic surgeon I will need revision surgery on my left knee . I have pain ! So I got the Tommie Copper knee sleave . Wearing the sleaves now . After wearing for a few minutes it feels like a rubber Band around my knee . After this e mail I will re adjust the sleave around my knee. Re adjusting the sleave is a constant ! i thought Montel had something which would help with my Knee pain . Just another snake oil salesman !
To expense and does not well
Im a nurse who was told that I had degenerative joint disease in both knees. By the end of my 12 hour shift It was difficult to walk. I had injured my knees at work and had my meniscus removed in both knees. When I saw this commercial for tommy copper sleeves I ordered this product. I measured my leg the way I was instructed to buy this company and I spend my time pulling them up or else the elastic band pinches the back of my knees and my legs go numb. This is not what I expected.
What is going on in America? Please read before you buy!
Really, Put on this spandex with some copper in it and VIOLA! all will be healed!
I must say that some Americans will just buy anything even if there is an obvious flaw in the product. I understand that when you are in pain, constant, daily pain that you will try anything to relieve that pain and get relief, even if for an hour it can be worth it. I have had 5 knee surgeries over the last few years and am in constant pain, but.....
COME ON! spandex infused with copper shall heal all. This is just another scam here to rid consumers of their hard earned monies, think about it, you are already in pain daily, spending your money on this product will only add insult to injury. There is NO magical garment that will cure issues like this, unless you are in the closet that takes you to Narnia...then you may find something helpful to wear.
Eating healthier and light exercise is what you need to do, I am overweight and since the knee surgeries I have put on over 90 pounds...well this just causes more problems and I dreaded trying to exercise with the pain and added weight. I just started to do it, even with the pain...I took things lightly to slowly start removing the extra LB's and in this month have dropped 14 pounds. The results are not extraordinary but it takes time to achieve real results. I can tell you that building up my leg muscles and losing what I have I can see an improvement in mobility and overall health.
Please do not waste your money on this, I just happened to be watching tv and this infomercial was on and felt compelled to stop people before they wasted their money. If there was some way to magically relieve your pain this would be something that would be used globally and word would spread fast, this magic garment surely would not be sold at 4 am on an infomercial.
If this even stops 1 person from wasting their money on this scam than I feel that this was worth my time.
Do not! spend your money on this product, it will not work that I can promise, and SHAME on you Montel for trying to make that extra buck off of the expense of your fellow American's....Shame
Customer service HORRIBLE
First of all, paid shipping even after advertised none with 2 items.
HA HA HA.
Ordered online, still Sent wrong size, packing slip stated correct size, but item in package, WRONG.
Talked with customer service, NO help and very RUDE!!! Was hung up on.
Also, if you do try it, was told not to order through TC.com, but through TC.tv. How stupid is that.
Can't really rate it yet since I haven't tried it.
Have seen the informercial and has been contemplating on purchasing but not quite convince yet. First of all, I've been nursing this tennis elbow and has not found complete relief yet after going through some treatments, exercises and wearing an arm brace whenever I play. Ive had swelling and soreness for the past 4 weeks since my last treatment. I am aware that compression helps with the inflammation. Why should I spend almost $30 for a compression garment when I can just use a regular ace wrap that I can buy at the drug store for under $10.
I havent tried it
The LPN at my doctors office raved about it and she knew at least 2 others who have had great experience. I am just wondering if it would work for me since I dont have inflammation but have Fibromyalgia. Anyone know anyone who has that and has used this product and had it work. Dont like the reviews I am seeing though.
\did not do what it said
i have worn the compression socks for the last 3 weeks all day and over nt. it has not helped my ankle pain at all.Very disappointed.Sending back for a refund .
Pure, unadulterated B.S.
If this was any good, we would habeno need for orthopedic surgeons. I think Tommy Copper has too much copper in his brain stem. And Montel Williams would sell anything to make a buck!
This is a good product; ignore the dumb reviews above
Sounds as though most of the reviews on this page were written by complete dopes.
I bought a Tommie Copper knee sleeve for a friend who had knee replacement years ago and has trouble with stiffness and stair climbing.
Even if the benefit of copper is still up for debate, compression sleeves and clothing have been proven to help with blood flow and joint mobility.
My shoulder surgeon thinks the compression shirt makes sense for post-rotator cuff surgery healing, so I'm going to buy one for that.
Tommie Copper knee sleeve
Bought these for runner's knees to wear during the day. The compression is okay and they trap some warmth. I only hand washed them and after wearing them for two weeks they would not stay up so I returned them.
I wonder if the company did a double blind study to prove any benefit from the copper threads, as the benefit could be just warmth and pressure. For half the price, Futuro knee sleeves work just as well and stay up.
Please give it a try !
Hi, let me start by stating that anyone who writes a review of a product w/o trying is a fool as well as the people who follow such advise.I have tried these items for both elbow and hands.i am a Disabled person and also suffer from injuries to shoulders ,neck,hands,and arms.I play competitive Darts as much as my body will let me,I have always suffered from a darters elbow from way back in the old days.Well I saw info-merrcial and figured I would try it out.Heck we pay tons of money for all kinds of pain relievers,Ask yourself this? how much in 1 year do you pay out for Aleve,Motrin ,Etc.... ? I would bet its way more than these costs.anyways I get quite a bit of relief from these items and can compete and play longer with less discomfort,hmmm sounds like something working.Let me say I dont care how it works,why it works or anything it just does for me. Just saying dont listen to all who say no,give it a try see what happens. Oh and by the way Ive have contacted these people and have no issues getting hold them,wonder why some do ???
I bought this for my mother who has arthritis in both her knees. She actually said it made her knees worse. I then gave it to my neighbor who has arthritis in one knee and she did not notice any difference. The item is a rip off and just another novel piece of junk. DO NOT BUY
My Pain Is GONE!
I have been using the Tommie Copper compression gear for 214 days and since the first day I started using the gear the pain that lived with daily for the last 15 years is GONE, GONE, GONE!! I really can't call it MY pain because it is NOT a part of my life any longer and for that I am truly thankful! :)
I do not understand why it works so well for some then others hate it
I was hit by a motor home when I was on a motor bike thaat all most killed me . so I been hurt from head to toe , So I started out buying one for my knee and had no ideal if it would work or not . This has helped me so much I was at all . So I lower it down to my calif muscle on the side I have had a pain for about 3 years that just went away . So know I want to buy more as it has worked very well for me but I do not understand why others are having troubles with it not working . I sure would like to know why it helps me so much but doe's not work at all for ones I read on the knees . Then people on here said they could not get anyone to take it back and could not get a hold of anyone there . I have called with questions 4 times and always got someone that has helped me with the questions . Every thing I every got off the Tv never worked for me . I felt I was just talking a big chance with this knee brace but I must say It works fo rme and I amvery happy with it . the firt thing I every got off the Tv that has worked . I wish you all good luck with your pain . Rick
My Husband loves them
My husband had double knee replacement surgery that failed and has been in pain ever since. He has tried the gamut for pain relief. From the time he put the TC knee bands on he has gotten some relief. They have lasted well and he wears them a lot. They have been very good at answering our questions and returning our calls. We recommend them.
Grandma loves it!
My 95 year old grandma suffers from arthritis in her knee and hands. I bought her the Tommy Copper knee sleeve and gloves. While she has not tried the gloves because she is always cooking and baking (yes, at 95!), she has tried the knee sleeve! She is still thanking me today and I bought it about a month ago. She said that she is able to do more than she is done in a long time!
It is unfortunate that the TC products have not worked for those who have tried it. Clearly, it works for some and not for others! My best advice; try it because you never know!
I bought the gloves in the hopes that it would help heal my hands which have gotten sore and stiff with guitar playing over the years. I have used it for two weeks, wearing it while I sleep and while I play and it has done nothing at all to ease the stiffness or pain. I'm inclined to think this is a total hoax, but it could be, like hypnosis which is sometimes used effectively for pain management, that if you can get your mind to believe it works, it works. Or it could be that some of the people who say it works for them have a certain kind of ailment that is different than mine or those who find it unhelpful. Or it could be they are lying. In any case Tommie Copper seems a totally useless product and a complete ripoff to me and if you want to try it, be prepared to utilize the money back guarantee. I threw the papers away that came with the box, assuming it would work, and will now just throw the gloves away too and never believe anything that comes out of Montel's mouth if he's trying to sell us something.
My wife and I were on the infamertial with Montel Williams. Catherine was given the glove to try on on the show, and felt the pain in her hand go away almost right away. She was NOT paid for this testimony. She got to keep the glove and we each received an elbow or knee brace. Since then, we each bought T-shirts, knee braces and just ordered more products like the whole finger gloves. Also ordered socks and underwear for our relatives. Many of our friends called us because they saw my wife with Montel and we do recommend these products to them. Remember, it does NOT CURE the cause of the pain, it just takes away some or all of the pain, while wearing it. Also, when washing, DON'T use any fabric softeners that will destroy the effectiveness of the copper threads.
When I was 30 years old, and snow skiing, while on the slope, a Safety Patrol Officer cut me off and I went down, my ski stopping my leg from twisting from the knee down, but not my body. I felt my knee pop out of the joint and then pop back in. For the past year+, I have had pain in my left knee after 47 years of being pain free. I am now 77. I saw Montel discussing Tommie Copper, and thought that I have nothing to loose trying this product. When the sleeve arrived in a short time, I put the knee sleeve on and to my utter amazement, the pain was gone. The first day, I wore the sleeve and also when I went to sleep. Best night sleep I had in a long time. I don't know how this product works, but I can defiinitely say it worked in my case. Most products you hear about today, make all kinds of promises, but never live up to them. Tommie Copper promises and delivers. Thank you Tommie Copper.
Just ordered a second t-shirt.......
I had one shoulder surgery ten years ago and my orthopedic surgeon told me I now need a shoulder replacement, which I'm in no hurry to get.
I've been wearing a t-shirt for almost two weeks and there has been a very noticeable reduction in pain, no it hasn't cured my shoulder, but conservatively I have to say a 30% reduction it pain.
I'm so pleased I've ordered a second shirt, this one long sleeve, and a t-shirt for my wife.
