Faded Fur

i need help, feel like im on crazy pills. Dog fur appears to be fading exactly where the dogs harness straps are. Before anyone suggests visiting a vet, been there, done that, dog is in great shape for the shape it's in. So i am wondering if the fading fur is being caused by harness strap friction or possibly sun bleaching. Next question would be will the dogs fur return to it's naturally darker color if discontinuance of the harness is implemented?

UPDATE: Posted my dilemma on several other sites. This site seems to have many unwritten rules, so as not to violate any i won't be including any links. Astatic to announce that because i caught the issue with the harness early, before any permanant damage was done to the dogs skin, the faded fur will in no time return to normal and can already see the dogs natural color returning. And was advised that if i wish to continue using a harness, to find one that fits more better or have one custom made. For now im going to go back to using a traditional collar. Will post many pictures once i figure out how.
