Tommie Copper is a clothing manufacturer that specializes in relieving persistent aches and pains through compression-oriented shirts, shorts, gloves, and socks. According to the company, their unique clothing line helps support muscles, joints, and surrounding tissue, which ultimately decreases swelling and increases mobility.
Tommie Copper Features
The Tommie Copper brand has a wide target audience, including everyone from high-level athletes to grandmothers who enjoy gardening—essentially anyone who experiences fluid buildup in their joints, muscle stiffness, or sore, tired legs. The company does admit that not all customers will immediately experience the benefits of their compression wear, as some will take longer due to their individual physiology.
In addition to its health benefits, Tommie Copper claims their compression wear is designed to be the most comfortable on the market; because after all, if people aren’t wearing their clothing, they won’t be able to reap the benefits.

One in a million top of the line!!!!!
I had severe pain in my lower calf knee and arm. After receiving my Tommie Copper sleeve, the pain in my leg, knee and arm is no more. After several hours I noticed my digestive system benefited as well.
Thank so much for such an awesome product.
I bought these products for my bf..... Tshirt, for his shoulders, elbow sleeves , and socks.... ALLLLL BBAAADDDD.....
We have SO MANY Dr. appointments for Heavy Metal poisoning.... because I tried to give my bf some comfort, I nearly killed him by him using these products. The copper and other heavy metals leach into the skin, and underlying tissue.... causing sores,,, itching, red painful rashes...Who knows what other metals are incorporated into these products. Some even contain mercury and lead. Thank God we have a GREAT doc... who recognized the issue straight away.... I will NEVER recommend these to anyone.
It worked for my knee pain
No one is more skeptical about a product than I am .. I watched the infomercial on this several times and laughed..then I decided to read the reviews on this product on amazon.com. They were all good except one so I thought, I am trying this...today was my first day wearing the knee sleeve at work..on my feet for 7 hours a day...my knee did not hurt me all day, it felt wonderful ! This might not work for everyone, but worth a try !
Extremely Disappointed in Montel Williams
I think Montel is being used because he is an effective salesman. My sister and I ordered knee and risk bands - pain never subsided. We have been taken like so many others.
Worst customer service EVER
My order is over 2 months late. I called, asked for compensation. They wouldn't do it, I asked to speak to a manager, I was hung up on.
I called back, the second person said she would give me $7.50 as compensation. It wouldn't even cover my shipping, and my husband has been in pain this whole time with bursitis. I said, "how about throwing in a knee compression wrap", she hung up.
The third time I called, I got a manager immediately.
She said Tommy Copper is all out of ALL products and that she can't throw in anything extra because the company won't compensate that way. So, I said, then throw in an extra $7.50 for EACH hang up. She didn't find that helpful, so I asked to speak to her boss, she said they will come in the office in one hour and for me to call back again to speak to someone else!
I cancelled my order. It was my first and last order I will ever make with Tommy Copper.
Shipment is Soooo Late!!!!
One thing, don't purchase from the site.
I have waited for 3 weeks and the order still hasn't came in.
The tracking is very terrible which doesn't even update
where it is, don't ever buy this product from their website
or at all.
I won't leave home without it
My wife saw the TV commercial and purchased the knee compression sleeve. I don't usually believe in these copper things but since she bought it I decided to try it. I have had pain in my knee for several years and have considered surgery.
I put the sleeve on and within half an hour my knee did not hurt anymore. It is not a cure but the uniform compression really works. I have recommended it to my mother-in-law and her friend.
Don’t believe the hype. I bought the Half Finger Compression Gloves and the stitching started to come apart down the side near the wrist on one glove (the only glove I wore) only the second time I put them on. The short time I was able to wear the glove I didn’t notice any difference in pain or support.
I returned the gloves and they were quick to refund but not the shipping cost or the cost of shipping them back. So, I tried a product that didn’t work and I’m out the shipping cost both ways.
Bottom line: it’s a glove. A thin, cheap glove. Even the lowest quality glove doesn’t start coming apart the second time you put it on. Ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and buy a wrist brace or wrist support at Target or elsewhere - they’re about 10-20.00 and you can always return them if they don’t work out and you won’t be out the shipping cost too.
RE: Tommie Copper Allergic Reaction - Follow Up Review
Well the sores still won't heal and I have to have them biopsied on September 17, 2013 and see a Dermatologist with the results. The Specialist thinks the sores are a reaction to the latex and whatever else is in the clothing which is questionable since the tags in my clothing say they are made in slave labor countries where there are no regulations. The sores still burn and itch driving me crazy and ooze a yellowish liquid.
I had an EMG on September 3, 2013 and have been diagnosed with:
Sensory, primarily axonal polyneuropathy. Toxic Metabolic etiology. Peripheral Neuropathy.
Which are a very serious diagnosis from my having an allergic reaction to the clothing and the copper mixture absorbing into my skin and entering into my blood and now throughout my whole body, organs and brain, as I am getting sicker.
Treatments for this type of Heavy Metal Toxicity is NOT covered by insurance and Thomas Kallish who owns, designed and sells the tc clothing has told me to get lost and "contact his attorney" proving he is NOT the least bit interested in anyone's health as he promotes the "health benefits" of his product, as someone stated on the Internet about his product, "snake oil" salesman.
I contacted the BBB in NY and sent the pictures and told my story of my reaction to tc products and they can't write about my complaint because Kallish refuses through his attorney to be responsible for my allergic reaction to whatever is put in the clothing, to resolve the problem.
Even Kallish himself states you can have an allergic reaction to the clothing. Kallish also states that the copper can absorb into your skin from the copper mixture that they sew into the material, but NOW is denying that what I am suffering with is caused by his clothing.
Even though he states the clothing is made in the US, it is not as after my reaction, I looked at the labels in the many articles that I bought and they are made in Mexico, Dominican Republic and China where NO regulations are required and where the cheapest ways of production of the clothing and what is added to the copper/lead ingredients for a cheaper production cost for the lowest cost for Kallish, so he can sell at high prices and get rich quick before this all blows up in his face.
As I said before, Kallish is NOT interested in anyone's health, or he would have immediately reacted to my request in April to pay for a treatment program and instead denies it all, thus I am getting sicker and sicker as the copper and whatever else is in the clothing continues to permeate throughout my body and brain and keeps the sores from healing. Kallish is ONLY interested in the MONEY.
I do NOT have diabetes, never smoked, do not drink, eat healthy, so it appears that this allergic reaction to the clothing is what has caused these many problems I am having from something in the clothing.
I was an athlete all my life, cheerleader, slalom water skier, down hill skier, cross country skier, Racquet Ball, Tennis, climbed Mt Fuji to the snow area on July 4th, my two sons climbed to the top. Climbed to the highest point in Athens, Greece to over look the City. One of my sons and I climbed a vertical mile the first day from the Rain Forest area of Mt Olympus in Washington and hiked for two days over the trails to the Visitors Center. Our only contact with anyone was a bear eating berries, which we quietly backed up around the mountain and waited for him to finish his lunch and leave. I taught repelling at an outdoor educational camp. Was a sailor, canoeist, bike rider, swimmer, anything athletic.
Stains cannot be removed!
The stains on the bottoms of my feet are not removable from one day. When I washed the ankle socks in the sink and the water turned dark purple. I have taken photos of the dye in the sink with the sock and the bottom of my feet.
If any one is interested, I will email the photos to you.
Montel must be in need of money to hack this stuff. It did absolutely nothing for me but drain my wallet.
Severe pain on both knees
Without reading reviews about Tommy Copper products I ordered two knee wraps - The knee pain would wake me up at night. Walking was a nightmare.
Results: Outstanding!! I wear one to sleep with no problems. I walk around with limited pain which is a big improvement. It was my goal to get refief and they worked.
It might work in certain cases.
I have a symptom on my right hand called trigger finger. When I wake up in the morning my fingers on my right hand will not move because the joints are swollen. It would take up to 30 minutes some days before they would start loosening up. This was not only painful but it also limited my functions. I could not do basically anything including hold a cup of coffee. It was hard to hold back tears because I felt handicapped and the doctors basically said it was something I had to live with.
I read many reviews and found them about 50 percent say it helped them. I wasn't sure of some comments when they said it stopped pain as soon as they put them on. I thought I would try the hand gloves for about $39 because I WAS DESPERATE. I put them on every night when I slept. From the very first minute the pain was gone and when I wake up my fingers were normal again. I remove the gloves when I wake up and I'm good for the day. There has been times I forget to put them on and sometimes they go back to the way they were when I wake up and then there are times when they are fine. Overall they worked well when I wore them.
BUT WAIT. I have a herniated disc in my back and I have pain all the time. I bought the Tommie Copper shirt and it does nothing for me.
So the bottom line is that these reviews that people write are true. It might work for certain cases. If there is a guarantee you should take the risk.
I'm a 26 year old male and experience gluteal pain. My bum has been exposed to severe heat and therefore I have developed bum bum pain. I decided to try the Tommie copper bum hugger, as I was interested in providing compression to my inner bum bum. Tommie copper made my bum hurt more that it did before I started using it.
The compression feels good on my bum for a little bit, but after a while its just too much.
Hope that helps!
BIG SCAM!!! DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT
I purchased 2 knee sleeves 2 leg sleeves and did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for me... In fact, it made my pain worse plus some side affects... Itchy, redness, skin peeling.
This product is all propaganda and the only thing it does do is make Tommie rich!!!! This product is BS!!!!
Pain Gone, Swollen knee ( what the heck). Lol
Not sure what this product did for me other than swell my knee. Knee injury was already healing, so I'm not sure if the Tommie Copper took the pain away or not. The pain is gone, but my knee has swollen really bad.
Bought ankle sleeve, pants and shorts
I had high hopes for this product. I have pain all over my body. Put the products on when I got them, slept with them on. By a couple days later, my pain was worse. The compression made my pain worse than it was, sorry, these are going back.
If I could give it no stars I would, but you have to rate it, one star lowest i could go.
Good at holding ice to my knee but not much else.
I am a 15 year old girl who plays soccer and am now training for a second triathlon. With all this activity, I am getting terrible knee pain. I bought two Tommie Coppers for my knees and they provided nothing for me. Instead it was something to help hold the ice to my knee. A lot of people said it works as a light- weight compression but because I have soccer legs (large thighs) the band squeezed my thighs but was too loose around my knee. Provided me with zero pain relief.
Order system is all messed up
I called to put in an order but never received an email confirm. I called back two days later to check, they claimed they never received the order. I placed the order again, they said it would be shipped overnight. It's 4 days later, and they can't tell me if it has been shipped or not. They blame it all on a new web site, but they have no clue.
Comfortable, Supportive, Relief
I am so happy I found this product...I purchased 2 knee sleeves and a pair of the women's and men's shorts. My knees and lower back, had gotten so bad I could no longer do my exercises and I love doing exercises, so it meant putting on extra weight, which only made the knees and the back worse.
With the help of Tommie Copper Knee sleeves and the shorts, I am back doing exercises every morning and with comfortable all-day stability. They aren't a cure product, but they are definitely a way to ease the pain. My lower back now allows me to stand longer and clean the house. As soon as I am able, I am going to purchase the Women's short sleeved shirt, for my shoulders and neck. When I buy another product if it is not working for me (which i doubt) I have 60 days to make my decision because there is a money back guarantee. Pefect! Thank you Tommie Copper, your products, your company and your customer service is the greatest. The agents answer all your questions and have the upmost respect for their customers. Great job, and I wish you nothing but success always.
