Can you recommend a dog harness that won't irritate my little dog's sensitive skin on her armpits?

One of my dogs has sensitive skin. She's got short hair, and her armpits have barely any hair, and her skin just irritates easily.
I had been using the Easy Walk (which I also use for her brother, who has no similar sensitivities - he's also more than double her size, and has pretty much nothing in common with the little one; we think their was a "milkman" involved), but she gets raw underneath (she also gets irritated in the collar area sometimes). The harness isn't too tight, it just rubs her the wrong way.
It seems like something like this
might be good, but I can't tell from the picture if it would relieve the problem because it would still pass under her front shoulders, just maybe not as closely/roughly?
Anyone with a similar experience have any advice? Thanks!
