wetsuit neckline gives me chaffing..

my new wetsuit's neckline chaffes on my napeskin as i turn head to breathe- always to the same side- while swimming freestyle.
I've tried applying pre swim vaseline jelly on the area, poor protection.. Any ideas?

Try BodyGlide there, much better than vaseline

Have a friend that's handy with a sewing machine to lower that line. Then next time you show up at a tri, you'll be one of the few wearing a 'custom fitted' suit. How's that for awesome?
