I'm Lvl 50 in TVHM, Epic and Legendary loot drops at lvl 49 Regularly

I’m lvl 50 working on second playthrough in TVHM, and Epic loot and above keeps dropping at level 49. I miss out on good gear because the damage output doesn’t match up with lvl 50 gear even though I love using them. Is there a fix being implemented for this? Once I get to mayhem the disparity will show more I’m sure.
