The smallest round-shaped latex balloon Bargain Balloons sells is 30-inch. Latex balloons smaller than 30-inch will inflate into the traditional teardrop or pear shape when fully inflated (see image below).
Manufacturers typically make latex balloons 30-inch and larger rounder in shape. Bargain Balloons cannot confirm that every manufacturer does this, but this is the standard for the manufacturers we work with. Even a latex balloon 30-inches or larger could have a slight change in roundness near the neck of the balloon– especially when overinflated.
The term "round" is commonly used online to describe balloons that– in the picture– are clearly not round. It has become an industry standard to describe a latex balloon 3 inches and up as "round" because manufacturers use the term in product brochures. Distributors and online sellers use terms they are provided by manufacturers sometimes leading to confusion.
The Bargain Balloons website only uses the term “round” to describe balloons that are round in shape when fully inflated– balloons 30-inches or larger.

*These balloons are only available in pearl and metallic color and are made using the same form or mold as the 36-inch balloons. Pearl and metallic toned balloons do not inflate as large as other 30-inch balloons sold by Qualatex. If you need to use them together with 36-inch Qualatex latex balloons, then blow the 36-inch balloons up to only 30 inches to match.
