Default 3k 4x4 comparison

I'm curious about 3k 4x4 twill. I'm thinking of picking up some 8.3 oz. how easily does it conform to funky shapes in comparison to 2x2 5.7oz?

As you manipulate the fabric over and around your "funky shapes" ,a 4x4 twill can bunch up and create weave distortions that expose the subsequent layers . 4 weft threads over 4 warp threads is not as tight a weave as 2 weft over 2 warp .
How odd of a shape are you trying to mask ?

4x4 does just fine. I find it's alot tighter than 2x2 and doesnt fall apart.
