Hug Snug or Seams Great?
How do you determine which is best for a project?

I'm going to be making several woven projects coming up soon with various fabrics ranging from crepe de chine to cotton shirting and light linen.
I'm getting all my notions together and am trying to think about seam finishes right now. I have some Hug Snug which seems soft and light and very malleable but unstretchy. I guess I would use it like the Seams Great in this video. But the video has me thinking about the lack of stretchiness in Hug Snug. Will that matter for some seams, like curved ones?
How do you guys decide what to use when you decide you want one of these two seam finishes?
Thanks!
