Tommie Copper Review
Although the science behind wearing copper infused clothing for certain benefits (namely pain relief and antimicrobial) seems questionable and over-hyped, Tommie Copper still appears to be a fine brand of sports related compression wear.
One of our product researchers has owned a Tommie Copper sleeve for years which he has used for athletic support, and the benefit seems to be in the light-weight comfort it offers.
There are a number of similar copper compression wear products on the market which may be available in local stores for a more reasonable price, so it may be wise to shop around.
Those who understand the hype of compression wear versus the reality will likely be pleased with Tommie Copper. Those expecting miraculous results could be in for a disappointment.
Tommie Copper was the first high-profile copper compression wear to hit the airwaves, and a number of similar competitors have arrived in the years since. For other copper-wear evaluations here at Epic Reviews, see Copper Wear, Copper Fit Socks, and Copper Fit Back Pro.
Tommie Copper is a brand of copper infused compression sports wear. Claims that wearing copper can impart physical benefits may be over exaggerated, yet some consumers may still benefit from the athletic support provided by compression wear products. However, Tommie Copper is somewhat costly, and more agreeably priced alternatives may be locally available. A number of competing products have arrived in recent years which may also be worth considerign.
