A far less enjoyable part of the season? Awkwardly changing from our street clothes to swimwear in a nearby public bathroom. Enter the two-in-one maillot: amazing on its own, better with regular clothes. Below, we've found five perfect plus-size designs that double as tops or layering pieces, and styled outfits around each. Read on to nail the look now! 01 of 05 Pair with Jeans Courtesy A sexy lace-up one-piece works well with slim boyfriend jeans and wayfarers for a casually cool going out look. Just be sure the denim is sleek, not distressed; the goal is to balance all the skin you're showing up top. Shop the look: Ashley Graham x Swimsuits for All one-piece, $109; swimsuitsforall.com.
