Robson, who ensured she will move above Heather Watson in the national rankings by winning her first-round encounter, was the 16th seed at the claycourt event in Charleston but again struggled with her serve against her fellow 19-year-old.
Canadian qualifier Bouchard triumphed 6-4 3-6 6-1 in a match lasting two hours six minutes, during which the Briton committed eight double-faults to her opponent's three.
Robson began the week 42nd in the world rankings, which will be next updated by the WTA on Monday - two places behind Watson, who has been diagnosed with glandular fever.
