Bathroom plumbing

I'm trying to plumb a bathroom sink. Coming out of the floor is 2" pvc. The drain for the sink is 1 1/4". I have a 1 1/4" S-Trap drain kit I connected but can't find whatever adapter I need to connect to the 2" pvc coming out of the floor. I've been to Home Depot and Lowes and am sure I'm missing something here. Help is appreciated.

They have it, let me go take a pic of my setup. Hang on. Pretty sure I had to cut a piece of 1.5" PVC and glue on the adaptor though. I'm still working on hiding all the plumbing here, so it doesn't look pretty right now.

Here it is at HD:

NIBCO 1 1/2 In. x 1 1/4 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Hub x Slip Joint - C48017112114 at The Home Depot

Also, a 1 1/2 inch male threaded adapter also works with the 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inch plastic beveled washer inside rather than the 1 1/2 inch washer inside! So actually you can make the hookup without a 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 reducer fitting, if say you forgot to buy one.

When that slip joint fitting like Hot shows has a washer already built into the nut portion, it is called a Marvel connector.

It sounds like you are stuck with an "S" trap. I'm sorry.

Reduce the 2" to 1-1/2"' coming out of the floor or out of the wall. Then use the fat washer between the 1-1/4" from the drain outlet into a 1-1/2" PVC trap -- the outlet of the 1-1/2" trap will go into the 2" to 1-1/2" reducer..

Buy your needs at a real hardware store where they have sales people with knowledge.At that type of business you would have made one trip and walked out with what you need to do this job.It is simple to work out and anyone with some knowledge could come up with the solution.
