There is no silver bullet to make someone just beginning riding comfortable for hours-long rides.
It take many hours, and many miles, to toughen up your backside.
And understand that the chamois in shorts is there to prevent chaffing and absorb moisture, *not* to provide soft padding.
Padding, (if any), belongs in the saddle, and should be so firm that it is difficult to press your thumb into it.
