Below, we list 10 shoppable swimsuits you can wear mere minutes after that seafood binge, perfect for snapping that after-lunch OOTD shot. At the end of the day, though, it's best to keep it real the way Bela Padilla does—no one ever said you can't enjoy heaps of food by the shore, so just stay chic and let any haters talk to the hand.
