what is the difference between "une grosse fille" and "une grande fille" until this sentence everything was described as the same.

"Une grosse fille" means "A fat girl", while "Une grande fille" means "A tall girl" Both grosse and grande seem to mean big, but with the subtler connotations of Grosse meaning fat, and Grande meaning tall.

does 'une grande fille' and 'une fille grande' mean the same thing? both seem to be correct but what is the proper translation a native speaker would say for a tall girl?
