In its basic, literal sense, it means exactly what it says. The person on the bottom is leading the top, thus technically topping from the bottom.
Guy 1: So I heard Derek let you top last night?
Guy 2: Yeah, but even though he was bottoming, he still had most of the control.
Guy 1: Ah, clearly he was topping from the bottom.

Basically, it is a description of sexual nature that could involve any number of acts: when a dominant person takes a submissive role but still remains in charge while the actual submissive person takes a dominant role but still takes orders.
A dominatrix is said to "top from the bottom" when she lets her submissive tie her up and perform oral sex on her, but all the while she is telling him how she likes to be licked and he does it how she says to.

When a top just ain't hittin' it right, and needs some guidance and expertise so the bottom gives their own input on how they like it.
Person A: I heard you fucked Riley last night.
Person B: Yeah, he wasn't a really expirenced top, so I had to start topping from the bottom.
