Chesty Morgan, also known by the name Lillian Stello, is a Polish-born,[citation needed] American, retired exotic dancer of Jewish descent who also starred in two films directed by Doris Wishman. Morgan was billed as having a 73-inch bust measurement.


Unlike many of the modern adult entertainment stars with large breasts, Morgan’s were not augmented with implants. According to the 1988 edition of Guinness Movie Facts & Feats, her bust measurement is the largest on record for a film star.

Morgan began her career as an exotic dancer in the early 1970s; her last performance as an exotic dancer was in Houston on the first night of the Persian Gulf War in 1991.

She starred in two Doris Wishman films: Deadly Weapons and Double Agent 73. She was also filmed by Federico Fellini as Barbarina in Fellini’s Casanova, but her scenes were cut. Clips from Doris Wishman’s two 1970s sexploitation films, based around Morgan’s very large breasts, were featured in John Waters’ 1994 film, Serial Mom. Waters also wrote a role for Morgan in his never-made feature Flamingos Forever.

Personal Life

Though she was also known, as stated above, by the name Lillian Stello, Chesty Morgan’s real name remained unknown as of late May of 2014. As a young girl growing up near Warsaw, Poland, she was orphaned when her parents were killed by the Nazis after the invasion of Poland. Sent to Israel, she lived in a series of orphanages before ending up in a kibbutz, Ein Gev.

She married an American and moved to New York in the 1960’s; he was killed in a Brooklyn robbery in 1965, when she was 27 and her two daughters were 4 years old and 4 months old. In 1974, Morgan married National League baseball umpire Dick Stello. The two divorced in 1979, but remained friends.
