    Maria Giorno has nothing against long gowns with high waists and flowing fabric — dresses that are designed to camouflage curves on plus size women. But the New Jersey high school senior had no interest in buying a loosefitting style for her senior prom, even though it was all she could find in a size 16 or so at nearby stores. So many stores, Giorno said, “never have anything that’s a little more sexy or a little form-fitting, or anything like that for my age.” Shopping for a dream prom dress for plus-size teens can be a tear-inducing, hair-pulling morass of bad design and few options.
