It's only mid-March, but stores are already in full-on swimwear mode. Though the weather hasn't quite warmed to the occasion, we're being bombarded with bikinis. This may not make practical sense, but we know fashion operates one step ahead.

This brings us to the situation at hand: With so many swimwear options to choose from right now, settling on just one or two styles for the whole season can feel like a major life decision. It's like, if you don't pick the right swimwear, you'll have to divorce it later...or something. To quell those concerns, we're sharing our 17 favorite plus-size suits ahead — with prices to satisfy every budget.
