thoughts on shaving bikini line & trimming pubic hair

I'm wanting some ideas on grooming my pubic region. I get really bad razor burn and ingrown hairs when I shave my bikini line - angry red bumps along the edge of the bikini line is not a sexy look in swimmers. Also, its embarrassing for doctor appointments where I have to strip down to underwear and for pap smear etc - the choice is between hairs poking out everywhere around my undies or an angry red rash - I always go with the red rash - just slightly less embarrassing.

So I was looking around online and found the Cleancut Personal Shaver: It's supposed to give a close shave without irritating the skin. So, it looks like it might be a good option for me.

But then I'd also need to get this: It's to trim the hair to stubble length so the Cleancut can work properly.

But also, I've been thinking of getting a bikini trimmer like this: That I want just to trim down my pubic hairs to a shorter length (but not shaved). I use a menstrual cup and if I haven't trimmed my hair with scissors it can pull when I'm inserting the cup. So, just thought this would be a better, quicker and tidier option than scissors.

But, that sure seems like a lot of products for one little area. Just wondering if anyone can suggest an all-in-one product that does what I want - close shave without irritation, plus trimming hairs longer than stubble. Or other ideas? The only female friend I know to ask gets Brazilian waxes but that's just a path I don't want to go down. I wouldn't even wax the bikini line - in the past I've tried tweezing and it made me bleed even done as gently as possible.
