Until the yield point the material will deform plastically, once it passes the yield point the material doesn't retain the original shape after the stress is removed.

A yield strength or yield point of a material is defined in engineering and materials science as the stress at which a material begins to deform plastically.

At upper yeild point without increase load it is falls suddenly to the lower yeild point because constant loading.

For Yield point, there is a considerable increase in strain without much increase in stress.

At yield point the material will deform without increase in stress.

So it does not allow to regain its original shape.
