Either get a bigger switch plate, or a smaller receptacle plate.
Plates come in stardard, mid size and jumbo.

At the panel they are...I have the new receptacles but they don't fit with the small boxes so I have to replace the box too. It's on my project list for all three bathrooms.

If it's on a GFCI breaker you don't need GFCI outlets.
