Tommie Copper Active Fit Long Sleeve Mock Neck Shirt Review and Giveaway. Oh Yeah!

I waited the better part of the day on Sunday for The Captain to be ready to go out for a run with me.  He said he really wanted to go, but he had other things that needed to be done first…  like watch poor Rafa suffer pain/injury and eventually lose the final match at the Australian Open to Stan… nice for Stan but very sad for Rafa, and me, a long-time ardent and noisy fan.

So, because I just couldn’t bring myself to watch that debacle tennis match, I kept busy with other things… reading blog posts… getting somewhat up to speed on Google +… making a new Spicy Curried Carrot Soup and then having lunch… and afterward, waiting for a national curling final to be over as well.  Yes, our household does tend to run according to sports on tv sometimes!  It's all good.

But run we finally did.  And it was cool outside so I wore my new Tommie Copper Active Fit Long Sleeved Mock Neck Shirt as a base layer.   As did The Captain.  We are both so crazy about these shirts.

If you read my blog at all, you will know how much I love this company and the garments they produce. I have relied on their compression shirts and shorts and tights and calf sleeves to get me through some trying times… such as several days face down after eye surgery, and recovering from long runs, and other episodes of muscle soreness and cramping. Finally.. eventually, I learned to wear my Tommie Copper garments to prevent muscle problems, and also to keep warm and cozy in cool weather as an under-layer, and sometimes just lounging and watching tv or reading.

So… to this gorgeous Active Fit Long Sleeve Mock Neck Shirt…

ME:  The first day it arrived and I took it out of the package I fell immediately and absolutely in love with the styling… the ergonomic stitching, and the girly fit.  It is the softest, most comfortable fabric...  silky and luxurious. As I pulled it over my head I was a bit concerned that the neck might be too tight… but it is just right. I don’t like high necklines that are too constricting, and this is perfect.  Once I had it on, I never wanted to take it off. I wore it for days before I finally got a chance to run in it.  And now that I have, a couple of times, I love it even more.

HIM:  Aside from the soft, comfortable feel of the fabric, I like that it keeps my back warm when I am outside in the cool weather. More than anything I like my back and shoulders to be warm and this shirt is a great under-layer.  The neck is fitted but not tight...  not too snug.  And I like the long length too. It stays tucked in my jeans or my running shorts very nicely.  I intend to wear it for golf practice next week, too.

ME: Yes, the length – I hadn’t even thought of that. And the sleeves are long too.    I am fairly tall and often find sleeves are not quite long enough. These are very generous.

HIM:  And another thing I really like, is that even though it is wet with sweat after I come in from running, it doesn’t smell bad like some other moisture-wicking shirts I have do. 

We both agree that this is just one of those cozy garments that you can wear all the time… in or out and we love the warmth that the patented copper-infused fabric generates in our bodies.

  2. I really like all 3 Women's colors...could always use white for visibility on my 5am runs, but I also like color. :) Depending on how snug the top is...I usually wear small, but in some of my compression tops I wear medium.
