I am fairly good at making bread except I am rubbish at making it evenly shaped. Does anyone have any tips? I've just done a bloomer that is perfect except for an unsightly bulge down one side.

Tension the top surface. For a bloomer I make a rectangle and roll & tension as I go. Think rolling a sleeping bag towards you.
