Default Do Burton Mint run incredibly small or is it just me? + women's boots recommendations

I'm planning to buy my first snowboard boots in the next few days, and as everyone suggested, I'm trying on as many pairs as possible...
So far I've tried Mint, Northwave Dhalia and a pair of Vans a while back (I can't recall the model).

The Vans boots were a 38.5 which is exactly my size, and the fit was good. However they were too soft.
Then I tried the Mint in 39, they felt tiny. 39.5, still too small. I went all the way up to women's size 40 and they still felt a little tight in the front - but my heel was too loose.
Then I tried the Dhalia in 40 and they were a better fit, not perfect.

Does anyone else have a similar experience with Mint?
Have you had any experience using the Northwave Dhalia?
Any other recommendations for women's boots? (medium stiffness)

Thanks!
