Our Story

The daily business of MUEHLMEIER is deeply connected with strong emotions.


"We work in a very emotional field - the optimization of the female bust - and we operate close to a woman's heart. As diverse as women's desires are, so are the multifaceted possibilities for individually shaping the female breast. The bra cup has the magical potential to create the ideal bust line and ensure the perfect wearing comfort."

Roman Mühlmeier

MUEHLMEIER boasts a long company history and has deep roots in the fashion industry.

Alwin Mühlmeier stepps down from the company's management. The original company, Alwin H.-J. Mühlmeier, continues in Bärnau by the children Rene Mühlmeier and Petra Schmidkonz as Mühlmeier GmbH. Mühlmeier Schwarzenbach operates as Muehlmeier Bodyshaping GmbH, and Enorm Form GmbH + Co. KG.


Every great story has humble beginnings. In this year, the company is founded in Bärnau by Alwin H.J. Mühlmeier.

The roots of the family trace back to the Baroque master builder Philipp Mühlmayer (born 1678/died 1757) and the weaver & bookseller Josef Mühlmeier (born 1843/died 1919).

Alwin H.J. Mühlmeier recognizes the signs of the times in the Bärnau button business and soon begins to put fashionable decoration as a whole into focus. The confident Bavarian dirndl woman serves as inspiration for many strikingly stylish fashion accessories.
