Carol Doda: Pioneer Big Breasted Stripper Dead at 78

Breaking News

Carol Doda -- who rose to super fame as an OG stripper with huge breasts -- died Monday in San Francisco. She was 78. 

Doda became extremely popular in the 1960s for her topless dance routines and her 44-inch silicone breasts, which became known as "The new Twin Peaks of San Francisco."

After retiring, Doda opened a lingerie shop in San Francisco called "Carol Doda's Champagne and Lace Lingerie Boutique."

Without Doda, we might not have celebs like Lady Gaga, Channing Tatum or Amber Rose ... who all worked the pole before they became famous.

Doda died from lung and kidney failure.
