When can I start shopping for clothes?! How do I know how swollen I am??

I can't tell if/ how much I am swollen, other than some shorts don't fit very well. But since I'm still wearing compression garments I'm wondering if their bulk is taking up all the room???   I know I sound stupid not knowing if I'm swollen or not!!! My stomach is so flat but there may be swelling in my lower back where I had lipo. Ive pulled out the tape measure and have been comparing my measurements day and night to see if there's a difference after being on my feet or working all day but I don't see my measurements really change around my waist or hips.   Any words of wisdom on swelling? I'm so anxious to buy some new clothes but don't want to waste $$ if I'm going to "lose" more inches when swelling goes down.
