Default Women's Union Bindings - Problem

Hello! New to the forum, been a reader for a while now

This will be my 8th year snowboarding. For the past 7 years I've been using cheapo but awesome kid's forum bindings (I'm 5'0 and a size 5 boot).

This year, I decided to take the jump and splurged on Union Milan Bindings in snazzy alien green and purple..

Then just this year, I noticed that my toe-side has gone absolute havoc, I've slipped and caught an edge while on my toes so many times and I wasn't sure why.

After closer inspection, I noticed two things:

1. My heels were hanging over my board (GNU B-Street 141cm) and my toes were half an inch inside the board - I tried correcting this by moving the settings but my boot is just too small so it is now 50/50 in the middle and not hanging over on both ends

2. I noticed my toe strap was completely loose so I tightened overall but I still notice the boot doesn't really quite fit the toe strap

My questions were....Is it possible for these bindings to just not fit my feet? Is it possible for someone's riding style to be so affected by bindings? Should I stick to kids bindings? What are your thoughts on flow-in bindings given that I have such small feet, maybe this design will be more secure?...

Thank you so much for your help !!!
