Help! My lovely girlfriend is blessed with sexy curves. I want to buy her either a particular dress or a particular skirt, in a surprise gift sorta way. But the sizes don't really match. And I am confused.

Her measurements: 38" 27" 40"
According to the designer's sizing guide, the options match body measurements as follows:
S 27.5 waist, 37.5 hip (too small on the hip?)
M 29.5 waist, 39.5 hip (too large on the waist?)
Dress: the medium is 36.5 bust and 29 waist, with no hip measurement, which seems too small for chest and too large for waist. Larger is bigger in both, smaller is smaller in both.
Both items have some spandex if that helps.
Are there rules for figuring out which bit should be the wrong size, given that evidently some bit has to be?
