female Did I get my fiance the wrong size board?

My fiance's measurements:

Size 6 Boot
Weight: ~125lbs
Height: 5'5"

We're both beginners.

I ordered a K2 Bright Lite 142 which K2's chart shows as supporting a range weight of 90-160lbs.

Would the 146 have been a safer choice? Some online calculators seem to hover around the 145 size when I enter her stats, but I went with K2's chart and a smaller size in her range because of her small feet (not sure if that's correct or not).

Also, any general thoughts on the board itself? I believe it's the successor to the Lunatique model and seems to be well-regarded as a beginner/intermediate board.
