Talking Tommie Copper... and a Giveaway Too

It has been a few weeks since I got to bring you a Tommie Copper giveaway, so today I am really happy to be able to do that. 

Everyone I know is aware of how much I love my Tommie Copper gear.  I am enamored of these patented copper-infused fabrics, and I cannot say enough about how my various garments have helped me prevent muscle tension, or recover from surgery, injuries, and muscle soreness and cramping.  When I am not feeling well, or I am cool or tired, and hanging out, it is my Tommie Copper garments that envelope me, offering cozy comfort.  I love the warmth that the copper-infused fabric creates in my body.

And you know I love them for working out, running, yoga, Pilates... and everyday wear, too.


And here is a new garment that I absolutely adore.  This stylish Full Zip Mock Neck Jacket is my newest obsession.


It is made from an ultra-soft polished copper fabric that is lightweight and breathable.  It has a shiny copper centre front zipper, and zipper side pockets.  Check out the the thumbholes on the very long sleeves and the longer back panel, too. It has beautiful detailing and a sleek silhouette, accented by the topstitching.  I have been wearing  it a lot. Actually I have been wearing it everywhere but to bed!

I particularly love this jacket for running... the sleeves are extra long and with the thumbholes, save me from having to wear gloves. And when I warm up, I can fold the sleeve back, up over my elbows if I like... and of course I can always just take it off and tie the sleeves around my shoulders when I get really warm.  Then put it back on to do my walk and cool down after the run.

It makes a great cover-up when doing my Shavasana after a yoga session, and a nice outdoor jacket, too, in this coolish Spring weather we are having right now.  Last week I wore it over a Tommie Copper Active Fit tee when I visited the dentist… I wanted to be comfortable (and comforted)  in the hygienist’s chair and it was perfect.  

On Saturday morning I put it on over a sweater and skirt to head to work.  And you know I love the higher mock neck too. I have been getting so many compliments on it and friends keep asking where I got it.  Check it out here.

There are also a couple of other Tommie Copper garments I want to tell you about today… the first is the Active Fit Short Sleeve V-Neck Tee.  This shirt is made from patented copper-infused fabric and designed for every day wear and for exercise.  It is cut a bit larger than the Compression Tee and it protects from 97% of UV rays. Visit the web site to check out the fabulous range of colors that it comes in!

I love mine so much and have been wearing it a lot lately… it’s great with jeans or to do my morning workouts.  And I am going to wear it to the gym this month, too, for my Body Pump classes.  It is quite long so I don’t have to worry about it riding up when I bend and stretch.

And the other item I want to tell you about is the Compression Camisole.  It is also fashioned from the copper-infused fabric so is moisture-wicking, and naturally anti-bacterial and anti-odor.  And like all of the Tommie Copper compression garments, it offers supportive relief from everyday aches and pains.

Just look how long this Compession Camisole is… no need, ever, to worry about it riding up and leaving you exposed during rigorous activities or yoga poses.

I really dislike having to worry about tops that move much if I am in a group exercise class.  I know I will be wearing this Compression Camisole a lot during this month of March, especially, when I visit the gym to do Flow Yoga and Body Flow.

And don’t forget that you can wear your Tommie Copper compression garments under your street clothes, too… they are extremely comfortable… and so gently supportive that I even sleep in mine occasionally.

Tommie Copper gear is very easy to care for.  It is machine-washable and (other than the gloves) can be tumbled dry.  They do suggest that you don’t use dryer sheets or bleach. 

I hope you are as excited to try these shirts, as I am to be able to offer this giveaway to you.
