If the bottom of your bench press is your weak point, you are in luck, there are exercises that specifically target getting the bar off of your chest. The dip, and decline bench press are the two most helpful movements for getting an initial drive off of your chest. Also keep in mind that your form may be inhibiting your ability to drive the bar off of your chest. Always keep a tight back, firm feet, and a slight arch in your back when you bench press to fully engage your body.
If you are buying metal benches, check welds and the rust treatment. Metal benches should have no swarfs as they can tear your clothes and even cut someone.
Foam rolling your upper body also has benefits. Loosening up your lower back can help mediate the strain and stress that is put on it when arching it during the bench press, and foam rolling your lats can help you form a tighter base from which to push. Foam rolling you biceps and front delt will also aid in loosening up your shoulder, and finally rolling around on your chest will relieve any nagging tension or strain that has built up there. Pretty much, roll, roll a lot, and do it before you lift, it helps.
