Default How big do you blow up your balloons before it starts to worry you?
So I was just curious to see what sizes every non popper blows up their balloons? How far do you push yourself to go? I dont like popping balloons but absolutely love blowing them up as big as possible! Sometimes even push myself to go farther. The pic I uploaded is a tuftex 17 that I managed to neck my very first one ever! This was right after they arrived in the mail! Was so proud of myself

I try not to blow them up past its rated size - but, at the same time, I do try to get the balloon to that size. I have a measuring stick, now - so I'm able to guesstimate when the balloon has reached its full size. The softer brands (such as Unique and Tuf-Tex) are more stretchable than the less soft brands.

I'd had balloons pop on me while inflating them, and that always shakes me up.

I try to blow them up to rated size -- at least to when I press in on them and they aren't as soft. After they're big and taught, I deflate them to about 2/3 full so I can be sure they can take my weight while riding on top of them and not pop.

I will blow up my balloons as big as i can ,but after they are where i feel comfortable i lile to push my finger tips into the balloon and if they go down about half an inch its good to rub against, but less air if i hump it .

If it is a good quality brand like Tuftex, Qualatex, Belbal or Cattex (And the loons are new), i usually blow them till the neck is full or the balloon feels rock hard.

Yeah I usually prefer them to be nice and tight! Not to the bursting point but I absolutely love to see and feel that tight full balloon! Underinflated just doesn't do it for me.

It depends, sometimes I worry too much and I stop to blow up them even if they're still soft and with a round shape but if I'm in a good mood, I blow up my balloons until the neck gets out.

When I blow up a balloon, I will press the balloon's body gently. When I feel the balloon is hard enough, it is the time to stop inflating. Basically just grow up a short neck.
I like to cuddle them snugly so I prefer a soft but big and necked balloon. It's hard to balance "blow balloons as big as they can" and "make them soft but small"

If I’m not popping, I’ll blow anything from 11-14 very hard with a full neck. 16-24 I’ll only get a full neck as long as it doesn’t get too tight (or I have ear plugs)
