I have this bra in Pearl, Teal, and black - I have 7 of them. I cannot fault it. Yes, after repeated wear, and washing, (by hand), they do, over time, lose elasticity, but that is not specific to that bra. So very many people complain about this bra. I don't come on here complaining about other styles of bra; simply what is for one, is not necessarily for another. This bra for me, is a Godsend. I need a full cup as I cannot wear balconette bra; THAT style of bra hurts MY underarms - my solution? I do not buy that style. I cannot comment on the bra digging into people, as I have MY body. But ladies, with Bravissimo, you CAN return something that is causing you pain or discomfort - maybe they won't tell you that, but you can. My friend bought bras, they were sore to wear, I went with her to return them, and it was NO problem for the store - yes, they had been bought IN a store, but I am quite sure that the returning, must be a company policy.
I hope you all find a bra that fits :-)
