Shopping for a plus-size swimsuit doesn’t have to mean compromise. These 15 fabulous maillots, two-pieces and swimdresses couldn’t be cuter — or more flattering:

Orange crush

Tasty delight

We’re smitten with this fruit print from Forever 21, which looks like it came from a Milanese fashion house. The high-waisted styling and feminine flounces aren’t bad either. (Forever 21 ‘Fruit Frenzy’ bikini, $20.80, forever21.com)
