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.

Glove stitching is substandard in quality
I bought a pair of Tommie Copper gloves with the end of fingers removed. They helped with my arthritis pain; however the stitching ripped out within three weeks. I resowed both gloves twice.
I would not buy these poor quality gloves again, unless they came with a 6 month warranty. They are not cheap in cost either.
Elbow pain, gone
I play softball/baseball year round and I have constant elbow pain from when I was a child playing through the ranks of little league to high school and beyond... Now that I wear my tommie copper elbow brace, i've been pretty much pain free. The catch is, you should wear it the night prior to playing, because if you put it on while you have the pain, then it defeats the purpose. It's very comfortable to wear 24/7. I recommend these products.
I have been wearing the shorts and shirt for three days now with no relief at all! My husband has been wearing the shorts for at least a month and he isn't getting any relief either. My conclusion is "It doesn't work!" Don't waste your money.
Does the knee sleeves really work.
Need to see good customer service reviews & happy customers
Have seen the ad in the past but never really paid attention to it thinking that this is another rip-off. Saw the ad again over the weekend and wanted to give it a try if it can really help relieve the pain as claimed. Decided to check the reviews first before I even place an order. Seems like there had been a lot of customers who were dissatisfied with the product during the 1st two weeks of March while there's also a lot of happy customers who purchased in Feb 2013?
I have a lot of pain issues and have been living with them and am still looking for a solution. I thought I found a solution but still playing it by ear for now.
I really appreciate the comments of everyone but what's holding me off from trying is the compliant on lousy the customer service and the poor quality of the product for the price.
Made a Small Difference In Pain
I bought the Tommie Copper elbow sleeve. I feel a small degree of improvement which is good. It is comfortable enough for me to sleep with it on or wear it all during the day. My wife plans on trying the pants for her hip pain.
I purchased a knee support size XXL. When I wore it it would constatnly side dowm to just above my knee cap. I contacted customer service. They told me to return it and get a size XL. I did so. The shipping cost was on me. I received the new size and I am still having the same problem. In fact one day the top part had slid down below my knee and actually formed a knee strap with the bottom piece. Not happy. Doesn't do what It was advertised to do.
Eh...sort of okay
I bought the knee, calf, shorts and gloves and the only one that did anything was the gloves. The shorts are terrible - don't fit correctly. The knee sleeve gel band makes my leg break out and if you turn it over it won't stay up. The calf is okay but I was hoping the two would help my knee.
Bought elbow pad, and it seems to be working.
Dd not work for my husband
He probably needs a left half fnger glove and a right forearm sleeve I bought him two wrist sleeves and neither gave him any relief. Needless to say he is not a satisfied customer
Great Product, Terrible Customer Service
Yes, I'm writing once again. They have sent me a deal where I write a review and can receive 20% off their products. Well, this is #3 that I've written and still no coupon has been sent to me. Getting very discouraged with your company. My husband loved the elbow sleeve I bought for him and wears it faithfully everyday. I have been wanting to try one out and thought since you all were offering a great deal of 20% off I'd order one. But I have not heard back from anyone and this is going on a week now.
Truck Driving Hubby
My husband is a truck driver and was having a lot of pain in his hands from long hours of gripping the steering wheel as well as some beginning stages of arthritis. I purchased the half-finger gloves for him. He says his hands do feel better when he wears them, however, after only 1 weeks of wearing the grippers are already breaking down. He does put his work gloves over them if he does anything else beside driving (such as putting the landing gear up or down) so I would certainly expect this to hold up longer (especially for the price). Also, I notice that the ends of the fingers tend to fray a little. I did purchase 2 pairs originally because of the savings in shipping, however, I was not expecting to have to replace these so soon. Great product, but needs some tweaking.
Does Not Help That Much
Purchased the ankle and comp. bottoms for my Mother,s Birthday in January. So far for the most part the items have been ineffective. However, it seems to me that the products are a 50/50 bet on working for you, so it hurt to try just return them in time if not working.
Didn't work but return process was great.
I have a problem with a shoulder due to frozen shoulder that didn't heal completely. I tried the shirt, but it didn't help. I returned it without problems and immediately received a return of my money. Shoulders are hard to deal with, so I'm not negative. Maybe they could research shoulder problems to engineer a solution directed specifically to this common problem.
I sent for a pair of sock, large size.........it would not even fit a 12 child. Can't use it. Waste of my money.
Learned a lesson........
I have ongoing foot pain. As a kid I had orthotics however have not used them in 15 years or so. I am very active / athletic. I do get foot pain often and it has 'climbed' to my hip flexor. One of the trainers at my gym suggested getting these socks. I purchased them. I worse them once and got a hole in the toe. I spoke to customer service and they very graciously sent me another pain which was amazing!!!! I now have my new pair. They are ok. Sometimes I feel like the compression on my foot is a bit tight. I'm not sure if it has helped my foot really. It defintely has not helped my hip pain though.
I have arthritis in my knee and was excited to try the knee sleeve. I wore it faithfully for 2 months and didn't see any change in the pain I felt. I am only giving this product one star since it doesn't work. Please don't waste your money.
I bought the ankle wrap for my sister and the hand wraps for myself. Neither of us can say we experienced any relief after 48 hours.
We are both very disappointed.
TommieCopper for Knee
I have been wearing this for 3 months. I am a seasoned marathon runner. For the past year my knee has given me grief. I am also a stemcell transplant survivor (2004) so I convinced myself this was just wreckage from all the chemo etc I lived through. I heard about Tommie Copper products on TV several times before I decided to try it for my knees. Well I couldn't believe that I got almost immediate relief. Yes! it was almost immediate. I had ordered two and a friend was having trouble with her knee. She borrowed my knee sleeve and she is now living in her Tommie Copper products. She has Lupus and lives with joint pain. Thank you Tommie for the pain relief. It is like a miracle.
Comfortable but cheaply made
I enjoyed the sleeve while it lasted. It was comfy and helped the pain but it started to fall apart after a couple of weeks of use. The stitching around the top band came loose right away and a couple weeks later it developed tears around the same are. Not worth the 25.00 i paid for it when you can get a mcdavid for 8.95 and it is much better made.
