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.

Terrible Customer Service
Tommie Copper is highly unprofessional and evasive. So far I have called twice (and you can never reach anyone on the telephone) so their voice prompt encourages you to leave a message (so I left two messages) and no one has called me back. I also mailed back my knee sleeve to them to get a refund because the sleeve does not work at all. When the post office attempted to deliver it the first time they couldn't because they were informed "no one authorized to sign was available". I operate my own company as well and there is always a staff member available to sign for packages, so what kind of operation is this that no one is available to sign for packages, and no one returns any phone calls (I left two messages). Also, in an attempt to reach someone I utilized the online contact form twice to no avail. If my refund is not received soon I will have to escalate this legally to the proper channels. Tommie Coppers refund policy states within 30 days they have to have the product back for the customer to receive a refund, however what they don't tell you is that chances are they won't return your phone call or emails until after the 30 days is up, so chances are you won't get a refund. I will never purchase anything from Tommie Copper again, and will encourage everyone I know to do the same. Highly unprofessional.
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.
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.
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 !
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
service? what service..
I can't get customer service. voicemail is always full and waiting on hold lasts for hours. even emails are not answered.
I haven't tried it yet, but hope it works better than the customer service.
very frustrating not being able to have contact with anyone. Makes me wonder if it is a scam.
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 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.
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.
Worked for me!!
First, may I say that for those of you for whom this product did not work, or did not work well, I'm sorry. But it's irresponsible to claim that it's a fake just because it didn't work for you. Nothing is 100%. This product clearly works very well for some, pretty good for others, and not so much for a certain percentage of you. That doesn't make it a scam and it doesn't make Montel a liar or scam artist.
I tried this for knee pain from some torn tendons that never seemed to heal correctly. I would say I noticed about an 80% decrease in discomfort in my knee while going about my day and it no longer gives out on me unexpectedly. For me, this product worked, and worked well. My husband tried the shirt for some shoulder discomfort he's had for years and he felt it helped maybe 25%. So for him, this product was minimally successful. But as he says, half a loaf is better than none at all and he's happy with whatever relief he can get.
For me the bottom line is this -- if you have pain give these products a try. Sure, they may not work well for you, but they just might work very well like they did for me. It's certainly worth a try since they really aren't all that expensive. And if they don't work for you, please don't throw them away, pass them on to someone else for whom they just might work better than they did for you. Don't just assume "scam" and toss them. That's selfish and irresponsible. Instead, think logically and know that these won't work for everyone, but they will work for many.
Call me a fake if you wish
II can not attest to the customer service issue. I ordered my shirt online and received within a fair amount of time.
I am a member of the armed forces. I have had my share of bumps, bruises and broken bones over my 20 year career. I have found the shirt give relief from the constant back pain i experience. I am not 100% pain free but the pain is tolerable.
As a military member, integrity is important to me. This is the only reason i took Montel Williams at his word. He is a former military member and so trusted his word over the negative reviews from others.
Remember, there are companies who pay people to write negative reviews too.
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.
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!!!!
Nay sayers are obviusly not telling the truth
I have been an a lettered college athlete and then in my later years a tri-athlete and marathon runner who has enjoyed pickup basketball at leas twice a year since I was in my 20's. This stopped after two knee surgeries and a destroyed right Achilles tendon. So at 37 I was done with exercise and became a couch potato gaining 33 pounds in depression. After I finished rehab I was still waking up every morning with extreme knee and ankle pain. Now I am not saying Tommie Copper was the smoking gun! But with Yoga, Tai Chi, and a wonderful stretching program and yes TOMMIE COPPER I am back to my game at 45 and I love my life again. So stop the lies! This product is not a cure all but it is effective and doing exactly what it claims to do!! Give BASIC pain relief!! I wear the product to sleep and during my workouts. The teenage girl who says it did not work for her is not the target audience and I doubt her sincerity. I was turned on to this product by an older woman in my Gym who raved about it. Not sure if the pre-teens are the target market for this mostly us weekend warriors. I am a real person and this is an honest review so take it however you will but don't believe the lies it may not work for every one but it has for me and I tried UnderArmor they are two totally different products. I only gave 4 stars because their sizing is off sometimes with certain products.

Helps Arthritic Knees, Got Good Service
I find that the knee sleeves help my knees which are arthritic. At first I bought the wrong size and customer service told me to go one size up. I returned the two sleeves and the new ones came in a reasonable time period. I had no trouble with the service. I'm thinking of getting the sleeveless T-shirt next.
With any product, medication or treatment, there are people who are helped and people who don't find it helpful. With every company there are those who have a good experience with the company and its customer service, and those who have bad experiences. I notice this in speaking to friends about my experiences and find that so many have a whole different take on the same company.
You can't always go by what others say. Some people are skeptics and they experience the opposite of the placebo effect. Nothing ever works for them because that is what they expect to happen. So it works both ways. But as another reviewer said, if it is the placebo effect that makes something work for you, who cares, as long as it works. With this company you can return it within 30 days for a refund so if you think it might help and you are suffering enough, you may take the chance as I did.
I take a lot of chances like that since I am very ill and traditional medical care is not able to help me. I am so glad that I do because I have found things that really work for me. A lot of things don't work (although they may work for others) and if I cannot get my money back I take the loss. Life has many uncertainties but if you aren't open to trying things you will never discover things that help you.
I am a real woman, 66 years old, with an inoperable spinal tumor, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, GI problems, liver disease and several other illnesses and conditions. Bless you all!
I am buying more!! Everything they have!!
I have a connective tissue disease, fibromyalgia, and a circulatory disorder. I have suffered from cold hands and feet (Raynaud's syndrome) and my husband cracked jokes my body was so cold it was like sleeping near a corpse at night.
I also suffer from arthritis in my spine, scoliosis, and degenerative and bulging discs. I am only 35, so this has been traumatic to say the least. I know pain and poor circulation well!!
TRUST ME, I HAVE TRIED IT ALL!!
I have fallen in love with Tommy's clothing. My hands and feet are warm, along with the rest of me! I wear it to my physical therapy, and my PT said she thought it was a good idea.
My body is warm, my pain is less, and the best part is it is sooo comfortable you can sleep in it...trust me...I HAVE!! :)
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.
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.
Thank the Lord!
I was initially disappointed with the flimsiness of the product.
BUT I have to say. . .
I put the items on and I was absolutely amazed at the relieve that I got, and it was immediate! I actually was able to play 18 holes of golf for the first time in over a year.
I have since purchased several additional sets and I wear them 80 to 10 hrs a day.
If I have a complaint, it is the price, no quantity discounts or frequent flyer breaks etc.
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.
