I've already heard that "double bagging it" is bad, in other words...using two condoms at once. But in context this only really struck me as meaning male condoms. Is there an increased risk of condoms breaking if you use a male and female condom, or is it actually preferable this way?

Two condoms (of any sort) = very bad idea. One is certainly sufficient, and using the second just increases the friction that the latex (or polyurethane) is under. If you read the instructions in the boxes (of both male and female condoms), you'll see that even the manufacturers say to only use one condom at a time.
