The data were obtained from questionnaires completed by 400 women in the Taegu area whose age was 20 years and older. The SPSS/PC package was used for data analysis which included a test of reliability, frequency, percentage, factor analysis, t-test, and x test. There were significant differences in clothing buying behavior between groups who had a higher tendency and a lower tendency toward materialism.
