Last time I missed a bench, it was about two inches off the chest.
From what I've read about powerlifting meet rules, I need to incorporate a long pause at the bottom, which I think would add quite a bit of a challenge from my typical light touch on my sternum and push. There is a bench video from Dave Tate that helped me adjust my form/technique to more like you are talking about and it's helped quite a bit in moving my numbers up.
