Do top heavy and top roping mix?

I am a very top heavy newbie that has been out top roping, at a local park, twice with an instructor. My arms are exhausted trying to keep my body balanced and close to the rock, and the rope just makes it even harder. My male instructor just doesn't seem to get it. I told him to duct tape two melons to his chest and try climbing up a vertical wall and see if he can do it. He refused. I'm a natural 42H, and even a compression bra doesn't help much. I'm climbing for fun and love the challenge, however not sure if I will ever be able to top rope being top heavy. I love to hike and would like to add climbing to my trips. Should I find another instructor (the guy I hired climbs mostly indoors)? Would another type of climbing be a better match? I welcome any advice you can give!
