Tommie Copper Compression Shirt Review & GIVEAWAY!

Get ready for some sweet free stuff guys.

Tommie Copper sent me their Long Sleeve Compression Shirt to review, and I love it.

________________________________________________________________

From their website:
 
Tommie Copper's women's long sleeve compression shirt uses compression to provide support for the muscles and joints in the neck, shoulders, torso and back.
  • Comfortable enough to be worn all day under your work clothes.
  • Wear while working out in cooler climates
  • Wickable fabric keeps skin dry
  • Helps provide support for shoulder and back strains and sprains
  • Gentle, effective compression allows for 24 hour use, even while asleep
  • Machine washable. Do not use fabric softeners.
  • Long sleeves provide full upper-body compression
  • Provides warmth

Right out of the package, the first thing I noticed was how soft it is, and the beautiful teal color.  It's pretty sweet.

I tried it on, and let me tell you, this sucker is TIGHT.  The material actually seemed like it was suctioned to my skin, but oddly, it was very comfortable.  Like wearing nothing at all.  This picture would not be a lot more disturbing if that was the case:



Thank god for clothes.

Listen, I had twins. My belly is less washboard and more like the playground rhyme: "Roses are red, leaves are green, you've got the shape of a washing machine..."

1950s bitches be trippin.


So anyway, the point is that I have two issues with compression shirts:  I don't like things tight on my stomach, and most of the shirts seem too short.

This shirt was tight, but not unflattering on my stomach, and it is a great length. 

Covers part of the ol' caboose.

I took it out for a long run, paired with a light jacket and compression tights, and it was perfect for the 30 degree weather. 

The only downside was that it did ride up a bit at the beginning of the run, but I tucked it into my waistband and it didn't ride up over the next 13 miles.

  20. I would like to win one for my wife who has fibromyalgia and Scleroderma. Her whole body aches and she has been in constant pain for several years. I plan on buying a couple more shirts and a pair of pants not to mention the Wrist and Elbow Sleeves. When you are in as much pan as my wife has been in for more than 15 years, believe me Tommie Copper fits the bill. we have tried many products but after reading the reviews about Tommie Copper Wear products we have got to get this product on my wife's body from top to bottom. So if you would kindly help her i think she would be as i would be indebted to Tommie Copper products from now on, not to mention what a advertisement this would be for people suffering from debilitating pain. If you know anything about Fibromyalgia then you know what kind of constant pain a person has. but after looking at the commercial for your product line i am convinced that this will help her on a daily basis to get up and walk and to be able to be Normal again. Thank you Tommie Copper for your line of clothing. AND they look great. Very Fashionable. Thank you. David & Nenette from North Carolina
