I would guess you won't get much heat thru the 2" memory foam as we tried putting the heating pad under it and got nothing until we put the pad on top of the foam.

Good luck, maybe the heated mattress puts out more heat.

We've been using a heated mattress pad on a 3" memory foam for about 3 years, no problem at all....

Just to clarify... we have a heated "mattress" not a "mattress pad". The 2" memory form has no choice but to go on top.

Fortunately, living in FL we have minimal cold nights... just want to dtermine what to expect when we flip the switch..?

Wondering whether it's ok to put a 1" memory foam on top of heated mattress. Concerns are does heat come through foam and/or does the foam hurt the heated mattress?

We used to have a heated mattress with a 1" memory foam topper and it worked great, don't know about 2" though.

We have a heated mattress with 2 " MEMORY FOAM topper I wouldn't turn heated mattress on memory foam holds enough body heat and makes bead hot enough. Don't know what happens with the mattress if it shorts out would it melt the topper and cause you to get a bad burn?

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.
