I bet you won’t be surprised to learn that the jacket, and the mock neck shirt underneath it, and the great looking leggings are all from the Tommie Copper lineup. These garments are staples in my wardrobe. I think they are dressy and stylish enough to wear for casual outings, especially when I am going to be outdoors on coolish Spring days. And they are so comfortable that I can wear them for hours and hours and hours.
This jacket is really functional. It is lightly longer in the back to make sure to keep you covered and warm, and it also has thumb holes… a great feature for long sleeved garments, don’t you agree? There are two front zipped pockets and the front centre zipper is copper colored, too, and zips closed to a nice, snug-but-not-tight, neckline. I like to keep my neck and chin warm on cool days.
The leggings are ample for my really long legs, reaching to the ankle and never riding up. They move with me easily. They also have a little pocket on the right outer thigh that can hold keys or a credit card or some coins. They fit me like a glove and are so comfortable that once I put them on I never want to take them off! If you have worn compression leggings you will know what I mean. And they match the jacket in stylish and functional stitching.
Underneath the jacket, I am wearing a black mock neck long sleeved shirt. It is an added layer of warmth and comfort, and it matches the jacket and leggings, too.
All of these garments are fashioned from Tommie Copper’s patent-protected fabrics… they are machine washable, but I admit to babying them and handwashing them in gentle soaps… I want them to last as long as they possibly can.
These garments are the blackest of blacks and I am sorry that my photos don’t show that.
Yesteday I posted some pictures of The Captain and I playing tennis at our neighborhood court and they generated some interest in our garments as well.
This particular shirt is one of the most comfortable I own. It is so soft and is part of the active wear line from Tommie Copper, It is not compression gear so the cut is looser, and has a lovely, ergonomic design for a full range of motion. The fabric is moisture-wicking, anti-odor, and offers UPF50+ protection from the sun's harmful rays. And yes, thumbholes! And check out the awesome stitching down the back. It matches that jacket very nicely!
And not to leave The Captain, out, he wore his Tommie Copper long sleeved compression tee. I talked him out of the mock neck to play tennis as I knew he would be too warm! He laughed when I took this picture and said he would have worn nicer shorts if he had known he was going to be published!
Since then we have acquired many more Tommie Copper garments, and our love for them has only grown over the years… and our admiration, too, as their products have evolved and the product lines expanded. I have done many, many more reviews. Tommie Copper garments and sleeves not only help me power through my workouts and activities, they also aid in recover and keep me warm when I am not feeling well or out and about in cool weather. And, a couple of years ago I put together a collage of pictures of some of the Tommie Copper garments I love and wear from day to day.
Oh, and of course that was done before I won these bright pink capris! I put them on with my blue long sleeved compression shirt one day a couple of weeks ago to head out for a run… I thought the bright colors would give me more energy to go do a run on a gloomy day, and it certainly worked!
I have a terrific relationship with this company… and had many opportunities to collaborate with some really good people who represent the marketing department at Tommie Copper. I hope it continues for a good long time to come!
If you are not familiar with Tommie Copper gear and garments, or have not checked them out for a while, I urge you to look at the web site. And do go and look at the Facebook page as well… they have lots of generous merchandise giveaways going on all the time!

Now, just for the sake of disclosure… I have written this post to showcase garments that I love and really wear, made by a company I respect and admire. I was not asked to write this review. I was not given product or compensation in exchange for this review… but I have received/won product from Tommie Copper in the past.
Do you know and love Tommie Copper, too?
