I have it now, and I am thrilled! I can hardly wait to tell you all about it. Since my Compression Core Band arrived several days ago in the mail, I have been wearing it a lot.
What appears to be just a little slip of fabric is really a compression band of very special polyester and spandex moisture-wicking fabric, that is designed to reduce muscle fatigue, improve circulation, and support muscles and joints. And it is stylish as well. No wonder I have been wanting to try it for so long...
The Compression Core Band comes in three different colors... Black, White, and Nude. I chose Black. And it can be worn three different ways for upper, mid, or lower back support. It can be worn all day or even to sleep in. I have been wearing it to work out and because it wicks away moisture, also keeping it on for recovery. It is very comfortable, and offers a nice amount of contouring/shaping as well. Heck, I don't like to take it off at all!
I should tell you this Compression Core Band is also very easy to care for. I like to hand wash my Tommie Copper garments, but you can machine wash and dry them as long as you don't use fabric softeners or dryer sheets.
In these pictures I am wearing the Compression Core Band in the middle position. It is positioned from just under my bra and covers my lower back. You cannot tell I am wearing it under my favorite pink Tommie Copper Compression Tee.
But it's there...here, I will prove it!
In the next few pics I am wearing the Core Compression Band in the upper position and it comes down to just below my waist... tucking nicely into my jeans. Please pardon the tan lines!
And when I add a top, in this case, my Tommer Copper Recovery Compression Tank Top, the Compression Core Band disapppears again. This has become my favorite way to wear it.
I have not worn it the third way yet, which is to cover the lower back, and down over the hips.
I have been wearing it to do upper body and core workouts... I have a niggly problem with my lower back. It aches a bit when I hold planks for a minute or longer, so the Compression Comfort Band is a nice aid to relieving that nuisance, and it also offers great support when doing my lat pullovers and chest flyes and other upper body work like pushups. I need all the help I can get with muscle support and recovery!
And I am looking forward to using it during golf practice, too. Chipping and bunker practice, especially, can be tough on the lower back.
Here is a great opportunity to win one for yourself... Tommie Copper is kindly giving away a Women's Compression Core Band to each of two winners! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. You can be in Canada or the U.S. to win.

Are you a fan of compression gear for workouts and recovery, too?
