A- Why would it be a Smile fruit if Oda posted the full name of the fruit as the Kumo Kumo no Mi, Ancient Type, Model Rosamygale Grauvogeli while the others have just been *insert animal here* smile user?
B- This fruit coupled with Black Maria's general character is a reference to the mythical Jorōgumo, a spider-like yōkai capable of shapeshifting into a beautiful woman in order to lure in and capture unsuspecting men as prey.
This fruit also resembles the popular modern depiction of the monster Arachne, with a humanoid female top half and a spider bottom half.

In other words, she stayed in that form because of Oda's shoutout to the Yokai aesthetic since Wano is basically Edo Japan, and with a name like ONI-gashima, if you didn't get the Yokai theme with her, Linlin's soul possessed objects in the tower among other examples then that's on you.

Oda actually explained it in volume 100's SBS. She found her hybrid form too ugly, so she did just like Chopper and experimented with drugs until she settled on that form.
