In brief: Breasts are part...

...Fat and part glandular tissue.
Apparently, the fat had been imparting the roundness you lost. Incidentally, the "ideal" breast is a "rounded cone" thus, "pointiness" can be good...

In brief: Loss of breast fat

The breast consists of glandular tissue, ducts and fat.
When there is significant weight loss breast fat is also lost resulting in "pointy" breasts.

large/heavy breasts (especially if you don't wear a bra) can stretch their supportive ligaments so the breasts tend to droop and lose perky shape

In brief: Breasts Fall

Weight loss typically causes breasts to become less full.
They tend to droop and point downward when this occurs. A breast lift with or without augmentation may be in order to correct this problem.

In brief: ? Constricted breast

There is a condition known as constricted breast, which is also commonly known as tuberous breast but mistakenly called tubular breast.
In any case, it varies in severity and may result in the appearance of a pointy looking breast due to a very narrow base to the breast. Traditional treatment involves widening the base with an implant but fat grafting has recently gained popularity for this.

In brief: Breasts have

Fatty tissue as their major component.
Weight loss and weight gain can change breast sizes and shapes. You should have an exam by your physician also to rule out dangerous changes in breast architecture.
