If the sample you tried on was a regular and it the length was good then I don’t think you need to add extra length.  As long as you’re wearing flats.

were you wearing heels when you tried it on? i’m 5’8″ and i wore 4″ heels with my dress and i didn’t have to order extra length. if you’re worried, you can always go back and try it on with heels (if you weren’t wearing any the first time). my dress wasn’t a maggie sottero though, it was essence of australia. it doesn’t seem like there’d be a huge difference in length between designers though.

@kguitarchic18:  Was the sample regular length? If so, I think you are okay. 

I got regular length in my Maggie Sottero and it is WAY too long, even with my 3 inch wedding heels. I’m 5’5 though…

If you are at all unsure then you should order the extra length.

@kguitarchic18:  Sounds like you will be fine with regular length if the sample was the right length.  I am 6’0 and my dress (not Maggie though) was just about perfect (maybe slightly long–but I don’t trip in it).  Sample was the same length as mine (I didn’t order extra length because the sample was fine)

I am 5’8″ and like you I had to wiggle it over gym hips! I wore 2 1/2 inch heels and I still had extra length. i didn’t get it hemmed but looking back there was enough extra hanging down that should have been hemmed. You should be fine.

@kguitarchic18:  since you tried it on with heels and the length was good on you then you should be fine with the regular length.

I have a maggie dress and although Im not sure if the sample I tried on was regular (90% sure) it was soooooooooo long. Im 5’7″ – 5’7.5″. My dress had to be hemmed BIG TIME. I’m not going to be wearing a huge heel cause FI is same height but even still I remember it being very long.

If the salon is saying regular… that should be fine… usually the salon tries to get you to order it bigger then normal so you have to spend more money in their store on alterations 😉

I am 6′ tall & ordered my Maggie dress in a regular length.  I am wearing flats & the dress hits the floor.  Here is a picture for reference – sorry its so wrinkled, this is when it first came in:
