Efficiency of marketing instruments oriented to sales stimulation and changes of buying phenomena in recent consumer society presuppose the need for compulsive buyers' behaviour cognition. Thus the problematic question is highlighted what are the determinants of compulsive buyers' behaviour
and how does that behaviour occur in retail clothing market of Lithuania The theoretical concept of compulsory purchase is grounded and the peculiarities of compulsory buyers' behaviour are reasoned in the paper. It has been concluded that Johnson and Attmann's 2009 model, integrating three
determinants the personality trait of neuroticism, materialism, and fashion interest, is reasoned enough on theoretical and empirical levels and can be a relevant construct to estimate the peculiarities of compulsive buyers' behaviour in the specific context of retail clothing market. The
quantitative empirical research survey method has revealed significant positive relationships among all the mentioned determinants the personality trait of neuroticism, materialism, fashion interest and compulsive clothing buying. The main conclusion of the research is that the most significant
factor affecting compulsive clothing buying of Lithuanian women is fashion interest.
