Hey guys posted in the wrong place initially.

I framed in my basement shower with a half wall that a glass panel will be attached to. It is securely attached to the intersecting wall and the floor, and there is a bench framed into it that helps to make the wall more study.

But I am able to flex/wiggle the top outside corner of the wall about 1/4”-1/2” in each direction. The inside of the wall will be tiled and I am worried that this flexing will cause my tile to crack.

The wall is 36” long x 39” high. I am planning to drywall the shower and then waterproof it with Kerdi membrane. Will the drywall help make the wall more sturdy? Anything I can do to stiffen it? Maybe add a second top plate?

I attached a couple pics. Thanks!
