A couple of 22.5 or a 45 right off the pipe coming of the wall. Then adjust the P trap accordingly.

Ok, but are there adapters to attach that trap to the pipe coming from the sink. They're two different sizes.

One is for a 1 1/2 tail piece, the other for a 1 1/4 tailpiece. Bathroom sink is going to be 1 1/4.

Anything other than what what VIP posted will not be a proper installation.

Look up--Ram Bit---that is a drill operated cutter that will allow you to cut out the old pipe from the T-fitting in the wall so you can use a street 45 or 22.5 in the T.
