Terminology lesson :
Pipe from fixture outlet to trap inlet : Tailpiece
Pipe from Trap outlet to vent pipe : Trap arm
Pipe from vent to mainline : Drain
Your tailpiece must be vertical from the fixture outlet to the trap inlet. 45* is considered vertical still, but that doesn't give much room for movement, only a few inches perhaps.
Again, what you describe above is an "S" trap or a running trap and those are no-no's.
