Frustrated with body changes

I'm a woman and I've been doing crossfit for a while now, and I'm frustrated with what's going on with my body. The more heavy lifting I do, the more I'm bulking up, particularly in the glutes, which is where I tend to carry my weight. I understand that it's muscle, and that's great, but my goal here is not to get bigger. I love looking muscular and I'm not going for a string bean super model body, but I also don't want to bulk up. I want to be lean and strong. I was told that women don't bulk up like men do because we don't have the testosterone. What am I missing here?
