Please describe the supports on the FEM and the physical sample. Please describe what equipment is used to measure the stiffness of the physical sample.
Often the idealized nature of the supports in the FEM adds stiffness that is not representative of the physical sample.
How is the force and displacement being measured? Is the sample in an Instron Tensile Testing machine? Do you have photos you can show?
