Measured ESD profiles of our full sample of isolated KiDS-bright galaxies (red points with 1σ error bars), compared to that of a more reliable ‘bright’ sample (blue, mr < 17.5 mag), which allows us to see all satellites down to luminosity fraction fL ≡ Lsat/Llens = 0.1. This is done to assess the effect of the KiDS-bright magnitude limit (mr < 20 mag) on the isolation criterion. Due to the smaller number of lenses, the ESD profile of the bright isolated sample is noisier. Nevertheless, its behaviour on both small and large scales is consistent with the ESD profile of the full isolated sample (orange), indicating that the effect of the magnitude limit is limited.
