Default New snowboarder, but having trouble finding my first board

I'm totally hooked on snowboarding, but having a lot of trouble finding the right board. I'm a female, and I'm 5'11" and 175 pounds. I have size 10.5 feet in women's shoes. I've gone snowboarding 5 times now and feel comfortable on the blue terrain. I want a board I'll be able to handle, but one that will also grow with me and won't hold me back. I fell in love with the Burton Feelgood 156, but I'm worried I'll be too heavy for the board and/or that my feet will be too big for it. I've been looking at men's boards but haven't found the right one.

Do you have any board recommendations or anything that will help? I'm thinking about something between 155-160? I want something versatile because I don't really know what I like, and I want to leave the options open. My budget is $400.
