This exactly. In order to do hidden snaps you have to make the wings wider (on a side snapping) which could add bulk. Depending on the pattern it's not always possible to do that. A lot of one size designs there is no way around having exposed snaps. Also, if a snap breaks it's very time consuming to replace a hidden snap as you would have to rip out the stitching to get at it.
