Default When to wear 16 oz gloves

I use to box quite regulary 5 years ago. So i'd wear 16 oz when hitting the pads, on the heavy bag, sparring, etc. Once I decided to quit training at actual gyms.. I thought why am I wearing these things? All I want is a workout and self defense. SO, I hit the bag at my house with 4 oz gloves, hit the mits with 4 oz, etc.
Today I went to a Muah Thai gym, but they focus plenty on boxing. Sparred some, and my cardio with the 16 oz was ****. Not surprising I guess since I only do like 1-2 minute rounds here with 4 oz, and did 3 minute rounds there with 16 oz.
Do you guys wear bag gloves, or always continue to wear 16 oz no matter what?
