I want to describe this picture:

The man is crying on the woman's chest.

The man is crying in the woman's cuddle.

Which one is correct?

Thank you.

    The phrase 'in the cuddle' just doesn't work. A cuddle is not something you can be inside. It is something you partake in. – chasly from UK Oct 25 '15 at 23:39

    "In the woman's cuddle" is not idiomatic. "In the woman's arms" or "in the woman's embrace" would work. – Hot Licks Oct 26 '15 at 1:56

"Crying on the woman's chest" is literally descriptive. Cuddle is normally not used with expressions of grief. If what you want is a idiomatic use for comfort through physical contact, use "Crying in the woman's arms."
