NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Several U.S. apparel retailers are reporting sales increases for June.

Victoria's Secret parent L Brands (LB) reported net sales that rose 3% to about $1.2 billion.

Comparable-store sales also increased 3%, narrowly missing analyst expectations for a 3.4% rise, according to Thomson Reuters.

The company's results were driven by Bath & Body Works June comparable sales that rose 6% on a strong response to the chain's semi-annual sale. Victoria's Secret comparable sales rose just 1%, down from 3% a year ago and short of analyst estimates of a 3.6% climb.

Discount retailer Stein Mart (SMRT) reported total sales for the period that rose 7.5% from June 2014 to $121.7 million. Comparable sales rose 5.8%.

Stein Mart said that geographically, sales across all regions were strong, except the Northeast and Midwest, which were more challenged.

Zumiez (ZUMZ) reported June sales that rose 2.6% to $67 million, with comparable sales that fell 3.3%. The retailer attributed the decline to a decrease in comparable-sales transactions, which was partially offset by the increase in dollars per transaction.

Zumiez said that men's, footwear, accessories and juniors posted negative comparable sales, while hard goods posted a positive comparable result.

Teen apparel retailer The Buckle (BKE) said that net sales for the month rose 2.7% to $87.1 million, with comparable sales that edged just 0.5% higher.

Value-priced fashion apparel retailer Cato (CATO) reported sales that rose 2% to $93.8 million from last year, with same-store sales that were flat.

Cato Chairman, President and Chief Executive John Cato said, "June same-store sales continue to be in line with our current trend."

The company's year-to-date same-store sales decreased 2%.
