I have the same problem. Sadly I do not have a solution, I go shirtless, when ever I feel like it. It was very very hard at first, and I still sometimes feel very self conscious about it. I suggest going to the dermatologist to determine, what kind of acne it is, and then finding the best way to treat it. Remember to look for no less then 3 independent sources telling you the same thing. This must be much much harder for a girl, then a guy. Try not to think about it too much. And where your nice clothes anyways, chances are no one will say anything, and if they do, ask if they know a good treatment you can try. That will shut up most people.

There are treatments. It is just finding the best ones to work with our skin types, and the specific type of acne bacteria that is most prevalent.
