Large body will need tons crammed into short dress (4)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'large body' is the definition.
'star' can be an answer for 'body' (I have seen 'Celestial body' mean 'star' so perhaps 'body' could also mean 'star'). I'm not sure about the 'large' bit.

'tons crammed into short dress' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'tons' could be 't' and 't' is found within the answer.
The remaining letters 'sar' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

'will need' is the link.

(Other definitions for star that I've seen before include "Lead actor" , "virtuoso" , "Outstanding entertainer" , "Celebrity - heavenly body" , "Heavenly apparition" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
