French term or phrase: Sport b. Femme What does the b stand for
In a clothing line description, I have this for all three lines (men, Womem and Children)
Sport b. Homme
Sport b. femme
Sport b. enfant

Could I translate it simply as sportswear for each line or does the b hide something much more important?

Many thanks
