        Did Elisabeth ever smoked ? And how exactly long was her hair ? I've always wonder this.

Yes, Elisabeth smoked quite a lot. Her hair was very long (past her waist) and heavy and actually gave her a headache at times. I think there are other threads that deal with both of these questions.

 Did she ever cut her hair?   I have long hair and some of my friends tell me that long hair it's not fashionable anymore.

I think that she didn´t do it...And about your hair..I think that long hair are the best!

No. She did not cut her hair. Sisi kept it long.

It was very tragic. At the end of her life (i.e. in the 1890s), the Empress weighed something like 47 kilos (in the old measures used at that time 93.20 pounds) despite the fluid retention referred to above. That is extremely light, especially when one considers that she measured 1m72.  :o :'(

I knew that there's a book that describe Sissi's strange diets.
Also I knew that during some time, she just survived with six glasses
of  milk everyday :-(

Her weight was 50 kilos and when she exceeded that weight she felt terrible.
Her waist was 50 centimeters

She wasn't just obssessed with her figure, she was obsessed with her
ankle lenght hair, she washed it with cognac and raw eggs, every two
weeks, and her hairdresser spend three hours doing her complicate hairdos

well my weight is also 50 kilos only my waist is 60 centimeters.. and i also drink milk and eat little because the milk drives away the hunger (dont know exactly how 2 tell that) but not because i wnana be thin but i love milk and if i eat much i dont gain any weight...
but well those days they wore corsets and that made the inside of your body grow different or something..got a pic for that..


the left is a normal body and the right one that weares corsets during their life
so that is one of the answers on why her waist was so small.

It's shocking!, the body and the skeletal structure are completely deformed, I wonder how it was possible to breath with those "traps"...and this was considered "beauty" ?  :o

If you wanna get even more shocked, look for "Cathie Jung" on google...
