Rookie tomato mistakes

Help! I'm a first-time gardener who chose tomato varieties without fully considering their size requirements. I have three plants (Yellow Pear, Black Krim, and Mr. Stripey) and they are exploding!! I have them arranged in a triangle formation in a raised bed but every time I rig or adjust their supports, they outgrow it within a couple weeks (especially the Yellow Pear!!). Does anyone have any suggestions for untangling/supporting these monsters?
