Why not make a non-linear calculation by iterating the calculation ?
1) Add a fraction of the load (step value is user-defineable)
3) Add next fraction of the load, but on deformed (stretched) geometry (*)
4) Back to (1) until all the load has been applied
Eventually : stop when material enters the rupture zone of the Hooke's diagram for the material.
