French term or phrase:vertige
From a description of a neck and décolleté firming cream:
Du creux du cou au vertige du décolleté, ce fluide ultrasensoriel offre une réponse spécialement adaptée pour la beauté du cou et la jeunesse du décolleté.
Never come across this to describe the bust (I've seen vertiginous, but that's another matter!). Wondering if it's simply a fancy way of saying the top of the cleavage?
Explanation: Isn't French great for cleavage expressions? It's like the falling off a cliff idea. I'm sure you could say it lots of way that would get the meaning across. My suggestion is pretty simple. Perhaps someone will come up with something prettier.
