Best ways to help rug rubs/irritation around the shoulder?

Best ways to help rug rubs/irritation around the shoulder?
Shoulder guards or bibs may help, maybe try loosening the chest strap so there's less pressure on the shoulders. Also try to buy rugs with silk lining or lining on the shoulders. I find the thicker bibs can actually spread the rubbing so maybe try the silk ones?
Use of a better saddle
i used a shoulder guard for my old horse, it stops the rubbing.
