putting the socks outside (over the straps) meant that they went over the bottom of the legs as well, which looked a bit weird. However, I assume that's the way to go.

I'm pretty sure it's not. I wear socks under my cycling tights. I also wear cycling shorts under my cycling tights, but I don't think that's likely to make a major difference here.

the baseness of a base layer is generally to allow wicking as well as warmth. You're not going to sweat that much from your ankles, there just arent that many sweat glands there.

Your first guess was correct - socks under

suggestion*:
1) take two hairbands/rubber bands
2) wear bib tights
3) pull up the strap from the top of your shoulder and wrap a hairband around it as if it was a chunk of hair
4) repeat for the other shoulder
5) if bib tights fit significantly better now, then you just need a seam sewn where the hairbands are
6) smile at a friend with a sewing machine (there are a good few in our house)
