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.

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 Haven't tried it yet
I haven't tried it yet so I really can't rate it to be honest, I just can't believe that a man like Montel Williams who suffers from MS and knows pain as well as any of us could lie about a product to make a buck, That's why I want so much for this to be true and try the Tommie Copper, But I have wasted so much time and money on other things hoping to get some type of relief that I am not ready to jump on this yet, So I stay in pain every day reading your comments and waiting for a miracle.
Do any of you have RA? And did it help your joints?
Cu issue aside, need smaller "small"s
I have always had serious doubts about the so-called healing properties of copper, although I'm sure that if you REALLY believe it works, it might just work....that's called the placebo effect.
I didn't order a pair of TC compression gloves because of the copper but because there are very few options for compression gloves with full fingers; most appear to be made of heavy, thick material that would be very uncomfortable & hot to sleep in, which is when I need them the most. The TC gloves are made of a very comfortable thin but sturdy-feeling material, and the silicon striping on the palm side is handy (so to speak) for manipulating things. However, even though I measured my hand as instructed on their site & the measurement was within the range for the Small size, the gloves are too big to provide any compression unless my hands swell up enormously, at which point I'm beyond the aid of compression gloves anyway.
At least one other reviewer noted that they needed an Extra-Small. As ever, those of us at the extremes of the human size bell curve are really spit out of luck when it comes to products. I don't even think I'm radically tiny at not-quite 5'2" & about 110 pounds, but I still have a heck of a time finding all sorts of products that are small enough.
Got the hand sleeves and got immediate relief. Fingers were stiff and sore due to repetitive stress from work and golf. Wear at night and as much as I can during the day.
Tried them but not for me.
I'm a veteran and have many problems. 1. neck & back - bulging & degenerating disc problems 2. Both Shoulders- surgeries: rotator cuff repairs , tendinitis, bursitis 3. Both Elbows - tennis elbow type I and II 4. Both Wrists - carpal tunnel syndrome. 5. Knees - Overuse runner's knee. 5. calcification in muscle tissues everywhere. 6. Impingement Syndrome. I see physical therapist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, and deep tissue massage therapist every week. I've been suffering from many different types of pain so I was really hoping this would work for me like other people have stated. I ordered elbow sleeves, shirt, and knee sleeve. I wore them everyday for 3 weeks except the knee sleeve. The knee sleeve didn't do anything for the pain and was making my skin red and itchy from the band so after 3 days, I stop wearing it. The elbow sleeves seem to work and reduced the pain a bit but not a whole lot. After wearing 3 days , the label fell off (sewing was poor) and after wearing a week, the band started to loosen up and started to roll down. I had to constantly pulled it up. I laundered them as one of the reviewer stated but it didn't keep the band in shape. After 3 weeks, it got worse. The short sleeve shirt didn't do anything for me. I wore it everyday and night but the pain didn't get better. so I returned them all before 30 day trial was up. I just read how bad their customer service is so I'm glad that I didn't ask for exchange. I mailed them back certified so I will see how long it takes Tommie to refund.
I am very glad for the people who got benefit from this product. I really wished I could be one of them. I tried and it didn't work for me so moving on to a new quest. I just got Penetrex to try out. Good luck everyone!
Relieved pain, shipped relatively quickly
My husband is recovering from cancer and debilitating chemo & radiation treatments. He had suffered a shoulder/clavicle related injury 20 years ago that he had recovered form. after completing chemo, he noticed several months ago that his shoulder was in constant pain. None of his current doctors can pinpoint the problem other than a response from chemo.
I saw the commercial and thought it couldn't hurt to try the shirt. He has not taken it off for 24 hours and has slept all night for one of the first times. He said that it has alleviated the pain to a point where he can sleep and get through the day (& night)without thinking about it. That's enough for him & for me.
We are going to buy the shirt three pack so he can utilize the shirt under business suits, as he is just returning to work.
My thought on placebo affects is if it makes you feel better or alleviates your pain, the reason is inconsequential. Shipping was by regular mail & took about 10 days. I did not use expedited shipping.
service and products
I guess I was one of the lucky ones I ordered, the keee, ankle, half gloves and the mans shirt for my husband. I recieved the products within 10days, my husband is very pleased with the products! he has back problems, shoulder pain and a injured ankle. He plans on ordering more in the near future.
I was initially sent the incorrect sizes on a duel order. Customer service stonewalled me for weeks. I requested that they pay for return shipping as the incorrect sizes was their misreading of the order, not mine. This was ignored. Took weeks for the revised order to arrive. No reimbursement for the postage. Have yet to test the product but will critique separately when done. Meanwhile, I can only speak of the service which has been abysmal. RW
not ordering becuase of customer service compaints
I was going to order this but so many people complained about the customer service, I am not going to order. No one likes to be treated like crap if they have to return the produce. No one should wait six months for a refund. I just ordered something over the internet and their expedited shipment took a month. Not going to get sucked in again.
For the intellectually challenged
Please be aware that this company clearly pays people to trawl websites like this with the sole purpose of either writing good reviews, or writing counter arguments to other genuine bad reviews.
This is standard practice in the battle to try and control the bad press which is being generated about a product or service. Eventually the product will die away when the bad press is globally accepted and when the manufacturers cannot dupe the public out of their money.
If it smells like b.s...
Thank you Tommie Copper
I have been suffering with severe knee pain, due to an arthritic knee. I was flipping through the channels on TV and came across the Tommie Copper infomercial. I was very skeptical but went online and ordered the knee sleeve. I can only tell everyone that it was the best thing I ever did. I have been using the compression sleeve for three days and have hardly any pain. I'm going online to order another - thanks again Tommie Copper.
Great Results (At First)
Being a true skeptic, it took time for me to order 2 knee sleeves. I "googled" most reviews and relented. As soon as I put on both sleeves, I noticed relief, as I am in constant pain from degeneration. I was more than happy to wear them to bed the same evening I received them. Since my legs were elevated I felt no pain, but I could still tell by the little "creakings and crackings" in my joints that this was not a miracle product. It has been 5 days since I started wearing the sleeves, and I've noticed that they are less effective than when I initially started wearing them. Even though I followed directions when measuring my knees for the product, at times it's too tight, other times it slips down my leg, or bunches up as I walk. I don't know if this is because I shift the position of the sleeve when I feel discomfort the elastic band or not. I'm going to give it more time before I decide whether to keep it or not. What's really strange is that I now feel some relief when I am not wearing sleeves. At least they keep my knees warmer!
I purchased sleeve compression for my elbow hoping to relieve my tennis elbow but no result.
I have been using the knee sleeve for approximately 3 weeks. I immediately felt releif, but thought it was all in my mind. However, now know that it seems to really work. It is so simple, hard to believe how much better my knee is feeling..
piss poor cs.
i will not be ordering , not because the product dosent work, but due to the negative feed back about the customer service. cmon montel do something about the customer service if you believe so strongly about this product, or is it all about the money your getting for pushing this product ??
I suffer from spina bifida, degenerative arthritis, slipped vertebrae and scoliosis, all of which are of the spine. My boss bought me the shirt. It fits comfortably and I have been wearing it for a week now. Today was the first day I experienced no pain. I have noticed I am more tired than usual, but that's the only problem I have had. I have increased mobility as well.
I NEED To Know Before I Buy....
I am interested in the product but it really sounds too good to be true...... I have a herniated & bulged disc in my lumbar, is there anyone else that has the same problem & if so, did the shirt help your pain?
Do your research people
Copper is worthless.
It is shown to reduce inflammatory mediators in vitro (cells in dish) but does not work in vivo (the body), according to DBPC (double blind, placebo controlled) studies. Took 15min on pubmed to determine this conclusion.
hack health products (e.g. snake oils) use this tactic all the time, and it really yanks my chain! Smarten up people of the masses...and do your homework before wasting your hard earned money on worthless products!!!!
.....See all those positive reviews....Pure placebo effect. The mind is a powerful tool. Anything that does not disprove the null hypothesis (in this case meaning improves a condition) in a significant number of patients by at least 35% is a negative finding...meaning the placebo effect accounts for 35% of any improvements observed! This is why people can be seduced by ideas like faith healing and crystal vibration therapy. If a person believes it works, very often in will...but the result is not due to the practice, but to the belief in it.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK...DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON SNAKE OILS!!!!
Ordered the ankle sleeve on Nov. 25th and paid for the expedited shipping as I was going on a trip and wanted to have it for my ankle. It was shipped on the 27th and it took 10 days for the "expedited shipping" to get to me. It was shipped by regular mail. I found the size too small so immediately returned it within 2 days and prior to Christmas I emailed and asked where my shipment was and never heard back. On the 27th of December, over a month from my original order, I finally got through to a live person and she said they hadn't sent it out and would the next day. I do have a email notice that said it was shipped. Probably will take another 10 days.
I have owned a business and you must have excellent customer service in order to survive. I wondering who is watching the shop.
