Thanks, and yes unfortunately. We just re-did that bathroom and realized all the strange ways it was built (the drywall on the opposite wall of the bathroom was attached to cinderblock via scraps of the exterior siding, and the slab was not filled where they ran plumbing... just a hole covered by the tub. So it's been a bit crazy fixing or managing these "details"). The back wall is drywall + faux wood paneling so no one is going to punch through it... contractor friend said it's okay to leave but no screws into it.

If you go with what you are talking about (melamine) and you feel you will get a dip over time add a lower rail screwed in from the top running lengthwise to stiffen it.
Thank you. We considered wire but the extras as you mentioned put us off of it.
I might not have been completely clear, my issue is that the shelves will only have support on the back and one side, leaving a "floating" corner with no support that I worry would sag or cause any screws holding the shelf in place to rip out.
