Dumbbells are harder: Dumbbells require each arm to recruit more surrounding shoulder muscles to help balance the weight which means you are working harder (given the same weight). The bench press is a great exercise as well, but it does work a more specific muscle group and is intrinsically more stable because both arms are linked in trying to balance the moving weight load. ...Read more
Exercise...: Do exercises that are meant to increase the size and strength of the pectoral muscles (both pectoralis major and minor). This will enlarge the muscles beneath the breast tissue. Aside from that, you can use augmentation pads in the bra, but that just increases the appearance. Breast tissue consists of modified sweat glands packed in fat - you can only increase fat tissue by gaining weight. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why does BMI increase when one starts weight training and replacing fat with muscle mass? Weight increases while becoming leaner, but BMI increases?
Not perfect!: Bmi only takes into account weight and height. That is good enough for most people but for people that exercise a lot and have a lot of muscle it is not a good reflection of their actual fitness. Muscle weighs more than fat so the bmi can increase even though you are in better shape. Most pro athletes have bmis that are in the "wrong" range. Worry about your overall health and not the number. ...Read more
Military presses: Military presses etc. should cause you no trouble if you don't overdo things. At 15 you are getting closer to reaching your maximum height - usually between age 15-18.
