    Default round vs. rounded

    barrel-chested • adj. having a large rounded chest.
    Hello! What is the difference between " round" and " rounded"? Can I replace " rounded" with round in the quote above? If not, why? Thanks!

    "Rounded" means that it is curved, whereas "round" means it is circular.
