What's wrong with "that big girl"? Does "vysoka" explicitely reference to body height? In that case, one could see "big" as too unspecific...

Exactly, "vysoký" means exclusively body/mountain/tree height.

"Big" serving as euphemism for "fat" you can translate as "silný / silná" (literally "strong").
